A wonderfully and progressively twisted horror - A Room to Die For review by NP

Spoiler Alert
19/02/2021

I thoroughly enjoyed this independently produced, progressively twisted film. Performances were strong throughout, my favourite being smarmy brother and sister Jason (Ben Ellis) and Jill (Loren Peta). Its weirdness is what made it frightening – you genuinely don’t know where the plot is heading,

Mark is an aspiring, and astonishingly bad, stand-up comedian (and a bit of a twit, if we’re being honest); Jill is his girlfriend who works in a call centre and supports them both. They rent a room in a house owned by Henry (Christopher Craig) and Josephine Baker (Antonia Davies), an old couple whose behaviour is immediately unnerving and gets steadily worse. Craig in particular makes the most of the old man’s grim perversions.

Events at the bloody climax are astonishingly nasty, and the very final scene makes you question whether the ending … really is the ending. Unusual, disturbing, horrifying and original; my score for ‘A Room to Die For’ is 8 out of 10.
