A new trailer has flapped its wings and landed ln-line for the dark and creepy new horror, The Butterfly Room. It is kind of creepy looking, with what appears to be a real sinister story and a great cast. The mood and atmosphere of the trailer is very unsettling, and if you can get past the odd bit of bad acting, The Butterfly Room looks deliciously dark and very interesting.
Directed by Jonathan Zarantonello, the film has a great cast which includes Barbara Steele, Ray Wise, Erica Leerhsen, Heather Langenkamp, Camille Keaton, P.J. Soles, Adrienne King, Ellery Sprayberry and Julia Putnam.
Consider me sold! Check out the rather lengthy synopsis next, followed by the trailer.
Ann, a reclusive elegant lady, with an obsession for butterflies, is surprisingly befriended by the eerily beautiful young Alice. Using her seductive innocence, Alice establishes a disturbing mother daughter relationship with Ann. Lured into her twisted world, Ann soon discovers that she is not the only recipient of the girl’s affections.
Confronted by Alice’s other lady friends, Ann’s shock awakens a dark, hidden past, unchaining a spiral of madness: a series of brutal and bizarre crimes that Ann will have to commit to preserve her harmless and deceptive appearances. The only one who recognizes there’s something unsettling about Ann, is nine year old Julie, her next door neighbor’s daughter.
With the inevitable curiosity of a child, Julie begins to explore the corners of Ann’s apartment, discovering a dark secret hidden in the walls of the forbidden butterfly room.
No one believes what she’s seen except for Ann’s estranged daughter Dorothy. Horrified, she realizes that the fate of the young girl lies in her hands. To save both Julie, and herself, she must summon up the courage to confront an evil that has haunted her for years.
With special effects created by Academy Award winning AFX Studio and elegant and refined visuals, in contrast with the sickness of the story, the Butterfly Room is an all female story, an American thriller, with an European soul.
