Tuesday, March 17, 2020 | News


Following up a well-received festival tour last year, the domestic horror film 1BR now has a date to frighten a wider audience, and the new trailer and poster have been released.

Dark Sky Films has announced an April 24 digital debut for 1BR; theatrical play had also been planned for that date but is now likely to be cancelled due to COVID-19. Written and directed by David Marmor, the movie stars Nicole Brydon Bloom, Giles Matthey, Taylor Nichols, Naomi Grossman (AMERICAN HORROR STORY), Alan Blumenfeld, Clayton Hoff, Celeste Sully, Earnestine Phillips and Susan Davis. The synopsis: “After leaving behind a painful past to follow her dreams, Sarah [Bloom] scores the perfect Hollywood apartment. But something is not right. Unable to sleep, tormented by strange noises and threatening notes, her new life quickly starts to unravel. By the time she learns the horrifying truth, it’s too late. Caught in a waking nightmare, Sarah must find the strength to hold onto her crumbling sanity…or be trapped forever in an existential hell.”
