Just ahead of next month’s American Film Market event, which sees many filmmakers hopeful their projects will be picked up for release, Dark Sky has acquired the domestic rights to 1BR, a horror feature from newcomer David Marmor. The movie is described as a “shocker rooted in everyday reality,” promising a grounded and unsettling sort of horror for modern audiences.
The story follows a woman named Sarah who leaves behind a painful past and finds a fresh start in a perfect new one-bedroom Hollywood apartment. However, she soon discovers that her surprisingly welcoming neighbors are harboring a sinister and dangerous secret.
Starring in 1BR is Nicole Brydon Bloom (The Affair), Giles Matthey (NCIS, 24: Live Another Day), Taylor Nichols (PEN15, Chappaquiddick), and Alan Blumenfeld (CSI: Crime Scene Investigation, Heroes). The film is written and directed by David Marmor, with production duties falling upon Alok Mishra, Shane Vorster, Allard Cantor, Jarrod Murray, Nic Izzi, and Sam Sandweiss. Peter Phok executive produced.
The movie has not yet been given a release date, but we’ll be sure to keep you informed with all the latest news and updates right here on Dead Entertainment.
