It’s been over two months since we shared a sickening trailer/clip for the indie hit 1BR, and animal lovers are probably still traumatized! If you’ve seen what’s in store and still have a hankering to check it out, today brings word that 1BR will enjoy its U.S. premiere at Beyond Fest in Los Angeles, September 28th at the Egyptian Theater.
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.
1BR is the debut from writer/director David Marmor 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 (Heroes), Taylor Nichols (PEN15, JURASSIC PARK III), Naomi Grossman (American Horror Story), Giles Matthey (Once Upon A Time, True Blood), Earnestine Phillips (HERE COMES TO BOOM), Susan Davis (WARGAMES), Clayton Hoff, Celeste Sully 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.
