Dead Room

  • slideshow_large


From director Ian David Diaz and producer Julian Boote, who brought you the award-winning cult Brit-Flick, The Killing Zone (Grand Jury Prize, Best Feature, LA International Independent Film Festival 2000), Dead Room is by turns a dark, tense and sometimes bizarrely comic story of the various occupants of innocuously numbered Room No, 2. An otherwise ordinary flat in suburban London, owned by an untrustworthy Nigerian Landlord, No. 2 is a room born bad. You know the kind… bad karma on top of bad décor! It inevitably attracts all the wrong people, and something weird always happens there.

Giving examples of its four latest occupants - a gentle writer being driven to murder by a cruel prankster; an ill-prepared trio of women falling foul of a self-perpetuating chain of evil; a TV journalist following an alien-obsessed, barking mad assassin; and a homeless man's encounter with a crazed Stalker and her victim - the Landlord shows us just how macabre and downright odd the room's history really is.

Set in a bed-sitting London many will find all too familiar, Dead Room follows the grand tradition of Dead of Night, Creepshow, and Twilight Zone The Movie.
