Look Out! Don’t Check Into ‘Room 9’ This Summer

Lionsgate is bringing the horror home next month with Room 9.

The new fright flick–available on DVD and on-demand July 20–is rated R for “bloody violence and language”, as reported by thehollywoodnews.com. For a preview, check out the trailer on this very page.

The film–from writer/director Thomas Walton (Dreams)–boasts several horror veterans, including Scout Taylor-Compton (Rob Zombie’s Halloween and Halloween II), Michael Berryman (The Hills Have Eyes) and Kane Hodder (the Friday the 13th franchise). The movie also features Brian Anthony Wilson, Tony Devon, Michael Emery and David Raine.

Room 9–with the tantalizing tagline, “You’ll never stay anywhere else”–tells the story of a room in the remote Johnson/Bedford Inn that was the scene of “a gruesome double murder long ago,” according to the official synopsis.

Decades later, the town is once more terrorized by “a string of bloody ritual killings. A mysterious woman named Star arrives to investigate and suffers bizarre flashbacks related to the inn’s slayings. Is she connected to the killings? Or the inn’s next victim?”
