Cleopatra Music & Films, with sales and distribution expertise provided by MVD Entertainment Group, has selected Sept. 26 for the DVD and Blu-ray debut of writer/director Rolfe Kanefsky’s haunted horror house thriller, The Black Room.
Back in 1973 filmmaker S.F. Brownrigg delivered the cautionary horror tale, Don’t Go in the Basement, this should have been must-see viewing for the Hemdales … a lot of grief would have been avoided. But then we wouldn’t have much of a movie if they didn’t go investigate the creepy noises, in the basement, in the middle of the night would we!
Jennifer (Natasha Henstridge — Species, Ghosts of Mars, etc.) and her husband Paul (Lukas Hassel — In Sickness, Into the Dark) just got a deal on an unbelievable home. They will soon discover why it was such a bargain.
Kanefsky, who has delivered such diverse films as Dead Scared (with Brad Dourif), Sex Files: Alien Erotica (Kira Reed Lorsch) and a series of Emmanuelle erotic movies, has cleverly mixed genre here. We have a possession tale, complete with grisly murders — in a haunted house — that is blended with the elements of erotica associated with the sexploitation genre.
You see, our demon in the basement gets its kicks and power from sexual seduction and arousal and when you have the likes of Natasha Henstridge, scream queen Tiffany Shepis and Dominique Swain as cast members there is plenty for this demon to work with!!!
Bonus features include commentary from writer/director Rolfe Kanefsky and the film’s star, Natasha Henstridge, plus deleted and extended scenes, a blooper reel and a behind-the-scenes featurette.
