I just realized this is the first horror movie where the only blood you see is menstrual blood... Great, great Barbara Steele. The Butterfly Room movie comes from director Jonathan Zarantonello and has an awesome cast on board – this is pretty stupid way to start a report, ’cause I’m sure that horror-fans already know all that. But, today I’m here to share one completely new trailer, poster and some images from the whole thing, so make sure you check it out!
Written and directed by Jonathan Zarantonello, The Butterfly Room is described as a dark tale of a manipulative young girl, an eccentric older woman and a horrible secret which connects them.
What’s definitely great abot Zarantonello’s movie is that it stars horror legend Barbara Steele in the leading role, while the rest of the cast also includes Erica Leehrsen, Heather Langenkamp, Camille Keaton, P.J. Soles, Adrienne King, Ray Wise and James Karen.
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.
The Butterfly Room is still without an official release date. The movie premiered April 7th, 2012 at the Brussels International Fantastic Film Festival (most recently played at Paris International Fantastic Film Festival a month ago).
