It’s been awhile since we’ve had anything to report about Jonathan Zarantonello’s The Butterfly Room, which is loaded with familiar faces from horror movies past. Today we’re happy to report that the film is screening in California this weekend, and we’ve got all the details for ya. Read on!
Two separate screenings will take place at North Hollywood’s Laemmle Noho 7 theater, on both Friday and Saturday night. Star Heather Langenkamp will be on hand for the Friday night showing while fellow horror icons/stars Barbara Steele and James Karen (Return of the Living Dead) will be hosting Q&A sessions on Saturday night.
You’ll find full screening information over on The Butterfly Room‘s official website!
Also starring are P.J. Soles, Adrienne King, Erica Leerhsen, and Camille Keaton.
Ann, a reclusive, elegant lady with an obsession for butterflies, is surprisingly befriended by the eerily beautiful young Alice. Using her seductive innocence, Alice establishes a disturbing mother-daughter relationship with Ann. Lured into her twisted world, Ann soon discovers that she is not the only recipient of the girl’s affections.
Confronted by Alice’s other lady friends, Ann’s shock awakens a dark, hidden past, unchaining a spiral of madness: a series of brutal and bizarre crimes that Ann will have to commit to preserve her harmless and deceptive appearances. The only one who recognizes there’s something unsettling about Ann is nine-year-old Julie, her next-door neighbor’s daughter.
With the inevitable curiosity of a child, Julie begins to explore the corners of Ann’s apartment, discovering a dark secret hidden in the walls of the forbidden butterfly room. No one believes what she’s seen except for Ann’s estranged daughter, Dorothy. Horrified, she realizes that the fate of the young girl lies in her hands. To save both Julie and herself, she must summon up the courage to confront an evil that has haunted her for years.
With special effects created by Academy Award winning AFX Studio and elegant and refined visuals, in contrast with the sickness of the story, The Butterfly Room is an all-female story, an American thriller with a European soul.
