Lifelong friends Kim and Izzy move into an apartment with a weird and creepy mediaeval stained glass window. Kim slowly starts to believe that their new home is haunted, but she doesn’t know for sure yet. With the help of her new boyfriend, Ian, Kim looks into the history of the apartment. She finds a string of disappearances of former residents, a murder mystery from half a century ago, and an ancient curse that could kill Izzy and Kim.
Room 203 will have a red carpet premiere on April 12 at the TCL Chinese Theatre in Hollywood ahead of its official release.
Ben Jagger directed and produced the film Room 203 with Ammo Inc. and Ammo Entertainment. Nanami Kamon’s Japanese book was the inspiration for the script written by John Poliquin, Jagger, and Nick Richey. Ammo Entertainment’s Annmarie Sairrino and Ammo Inc.’s Moeko Suzuki, together with Kat McPhee, Ben Anderson, and Eric Gibson, are the producers of this film. Executive producers were Babacar Diene and Mashio Takeda, with Ty Whittington-Scott serving as a co-producer.
Jagger said, “At the emotional core of this story, the characters are dealing with guilt and are trying to find redemption for past and present mistakes that fracture the foundations of friendship, family and love. When I began making this movie, it was always my hope that the audience would be invested by the emotional drama of the story and that the horror would serve as amplification for the conflict that these characters are going through in their daily lives. I grew up on 70’s and 80’s horror movies and there was just something unsettling about the tone and aesthetic of the horror films from those eras. In my experience, every director on their independent project is faced with a plethora of challenges which forces them to become a better filmmaker in the process. Working on Room 203 will always be special to me because of the people who banded together during an uncertain time where the world seemed stuck with no sense of direction, yet we made it happen from our shared love of making movies.”
