The One Room In Your House You Should Never Enter Alone
A New Horror Classic Available January 15, 2008 From the Director of PET SEMATARY
Woodland Hills, CA – Allumination FilmWorks is proud to announce the debut of The Attic, the spine-tingling new film from award-winning director Mary Lambert (Pet Sematary, Pet Sematary 2, Urban Legends: Bloody Mary). The DVD will be released on January 15, 2008 under Allumination’s partnership with Slamdance for a suggested price of $29.98. The Attic features a top-notch cast including Jason Lewis (“Sex and the City,” Mr. Brooks, “Brothers and Sisters”), John Savage (The Deer Hunter, Do the Right Thing, “Carnivale”), Catherine Mary Stewart (Night of the Comet, Weekend at Bernie’s) and Thomas Jay Ryan (Henry Fool, Fay Grim).
“The Attic is a classic ghost story in the tradition of The Shining and The Changeling,” says Cheryl Freeman, President and CEO of Allumination Filmworks. “The emphasis on psychological suspense has been brilliantly realized by director Mary Lambert.”
Emma (Elisabeth Moss, “The West Wing,” “Invasion”) is a troubled teen with a strong aversion toward her family’s new house - particularly the attic. After moving into their picture-perfect Victorian home, Emma and her family come to feel uncomfortable and unhappy in their new surroundings. The situation escalates one day when Emma is in the attic alone and she is viciously attacked by someone who looks exactly like her! Emma becomes convinced that someone or something is haunting her, and that her own past holds the key. As the clues pile up, Emma discovers that she once had a twin sister named Beth, who died 12 days after they were born. Emma’s fear intensifies when she realizes that she can’t turn to her family for answers, and she begins to suspect that it may be Beth determined to destroy anyone who dares delve into the dark mysteries of The Attic.
