As YouTube looks to expand its premium content, the streaming service has cranked out the new young adult dystopia film The Thinning. So we caught up with the young stars of the YouTube Red original film to get the scoop.

We chatted with Peyton List and Logan Paul to dig into the film, which is essentially set in the sweet spot between Divergent and The Hunger Games. As the stars explain, the story takes place in the near future where an aptitude test is used to determine which high-schoolers will live and which ones will die. The cast talk about their experience delving into the sci-fi genre, and what it was like to take on some of the film’s action and stunt scenes.

The Thinning is available now on YouTube Red.
