The first teaser trailer for New Zealand director Jason Stutters horror The Dead Room has just been released, and using a well known horror gag, its cliched but effective, and just might make you jmp.
Timing is everything in horror, and even if the viewer is presented with a well known gimmick, get it right, and it can still work, and the below teaser works, don’t you agree?
The Dead Room is written and directed by Jason Stutter, and the cast includes Jed Brophy, Jeffrey Thomas and Laura Petersen.
When a terrified family flees a desolate southern New Zealand farmhouse, two cynical scientists and a young psychic are sent to investigate their claims of a haunting. There they encounter a powerful spirit that will protect the house’s secrets at all cost.
The Dead Room is inspired by the chilling urban legend surrounding a farmhouse in Central Otago, New Zealand. In the early 1970s, two science tutors went to debunk claims a rural house was haunted and uncovered an incredibly disturbing mystery.
