Whedon on Goners

In an interview with the Suicide Girls website,[2] when asked about the film itself, Whedon said:

It is a fantasy thriller, it is pretty dark and it’s all me. So people will pretty much know what that means if they look at my body of work. But it’s a new universe set in the present day with a new concept for me and a new bunch of characters. It’s been a long time since I got to do that, so that’s really fun.

From an interview with Fanboy Radio:[3]

I've been seeing a lot of horror movies that are torture-porn, where kids we don't care about are mutilated for hours, and I just cannot abide them... it's an antidote to that very kind of film, the horror movie with the expendable human beings in it. Because I don't believe any human beings are.

"Goners is a movie with a lot of beautiful inspirational human stuff but it's also a horror movie. Ultimately it's about a darker place in all of us." - Rope of Silicon[4]

"It's the story of a young woman's journey that involves a great deal of horror and some heroics." - Variety[1]

"It's a completely new work that does take place in the modern world. Needless to say, slightly left of center. It's a different adventure, and it's kind of a horror film. It's dark. It's not nihilistic, but there's a very ugly side to humanity going on in it. It takes place in the modern world, it's just a part of the modern world most people don't get to see." - The Fandom[5]

"It takes place now, so I don't have to build a universe, but it's not a movie without fantasy." - ComingSoon[6]

"What I will say is that it ventures more into the horrific than I normally tend to." - Empire Online[7]

"More in the Buffy-mode of discovering strength than in the sense of, "I've had strength for so long that I'm losing my sense of people who don't." - Film Focus[8]
