The investigation into the recent tragic stabbing deaths at the University of Idaho continues, the suspect is currently in custody. The accused assailant, Brian Kohberger, is now in Idaho after being transported from his former location, a prison in his home state of Pennsylvania, during the trial.

You won’t find “Two Days Ago” among the new films of 2023, and you won’t see this project in any iteration of the list of upcoming horror films. That’s because this indie horror movie in question was released back in 2011. acting credit to actor Amanda Kohberger, Brian’s sister. In this story, a killer kills a group of environmental activist students, with stab wounds included in the number of deaths that took place in this project.
Media outlets such as TMZ contacted the film’s director, Kevin Boone, as not only was Amanda Kohberger’s involvement connected to these very real tragedies, but apparently the plot itself. Commenting on this event, Boone stated that Amanda had never talked about Brian, and he did not know about their relationship until recent press coverage. The director also made this statement in an interview with the New York Post.
As for the working relationship between the director and the star, Kevin Boone did not declare a deeper connection with Amanda Kohberger, only knowing that she came from Pennsylvania. In an interview with TMZ, Boone stated that he only knew about it because Amanda had to return to Idaho for filming “Two days ago.” All of these questions arise from the newfound interest in the project due to the alleged parallels that the film has with the crimes in connection with which Brian Koberger is currently being held.

The similarities between the actual murders and the murders depicted in “Two Days Ago” have been a subject of discussion, as can be seen from the interview above. This may be a similarity that will be studied more closely over time. At this point, it does not appear that anyone involved in the investigation has claimed that this potential connection is anything more than a mere coincidence.
