After leaving behind a painful past to follow her dreams, Sarah 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.
Look for 1BR to premiere at Montreal’s Fantasia International Film Festival, on July 18th.
“Horror films don’t come more instantly identifiable than 1BR,” says Matthew Kiernan of the Fantasia International Film Festival. “[David] Marmor’s smart script and solid cast make 1BR one of Fantasia 2019’s top discoveries. Don’t sleep in this 1BR, but don’t sleep on it, either.”
1BR is Marmor’s debut and produced by Alok Mishra and Shane Vorster for Malevolent Films, Allard Cantor and Jarrod Murray for Epicenter, as well as Nic Izzi and Sam Sandweiss, and executive produced by Peter Phok.
The film’s diverse cast includes Alan Blumenfeld, Taylor Nichols, Naomi Grossman, Giles Matthey, Earnestine Phillips, Susan Davis, Clayton Hoff, Celeste Sullivan, and Nicole Brydon Bloom as Sarah, in her debut feature film. 1BR features a vibrantly nightmarish score from celebrated composer Ronen Landa, best known for his work on horror hits The Pact and At the Devil’s Door.
