Dear David is the second time a Twitter thread becomes a movie. The first one is Zola which is a black comedy based from the experience and Twitter rant of a Hooters Waitress and her fall out with her friend. It stars Augustus Prew, Andrea Bang and Justin Long, as Bryce, the head of Buzzfeed.
Dear David (Do not confuse it with a Thai romance movie with the same title.) though is different. It was based from a live tweet of Adam Ellis who is tweeting the events as he gets haunted. He gets to live to tell the tale so Lionsgate offered him to turn his nightmarish experience. I feel uncomfortable as I write this article because I feel like the thumbnail of the dented head boy is staring at me.
