Ahead of its world premiere at the 2019 Fantasia Film Festival, we have our first look at the chilling LA-st thriller 1BR. From writer/director David Mamor, 1BR follows “a young woman starting over in a new city scores a perfect apartment, only to discover, too late, that the place is not at all what it seems”.
It will take you less time to watch the clip than it will to read this article so don’t feel bad about skipping the rest of this paragraph. But a word of fair warning: If you have a sensitivity to a nightmarish sense of reality that looks and feels like real life, but is just slightly askew from the world you know, just unsettling enough to make you feel that this can’t possibly be real- approach the clip below with caution….
After leaving behind a painful past to follow her dreams, Sarah scores the perfect Hollywood apartment. But something is not right. Unable to sleep, tormented by strange noises and threatening notes, her new life quickly starts to unravel. By the time she learns the horrifying truth, it’s too late. Caught in a waking nightmare, Sarah must find the strength to hold onto her crumbling sanity…or be trapped forever in an existential hell.
