In her 4.5-star Telluride Horror Show review, Christina Bergling wrote that "psychological horror almost always wins with me, but 1BR in particular gets it so right." Following its run on the festival circuit, 1BR is coming out soon from Dark Sky Films, and we've been welcomed to the film's nightmarish neighborhood with the movie's official trailer and poster.
Written and directed by David Marmor, 1BR stars Nicole Brydon Bloom (Law and Order SVU, The Affair), Giles Matthey (Ford v Ferrari) Taylor Nichols (PEN15), Naomi Grossman (American Horror Story), Alan Blumenfeld (Heroes), Clayton Hoff (Shameless), Celeste Sully (Toni Braxton: Unbreak My Heart), Earnestine Phillips (Here Comes the Boom), and Susan Davis (WarGames).
The film was produced by Alok Mishra and Shane Vorster (of Malevolent Films), Allard Cantor and Jarrod Murray (of Epicenter), and Nic Izzi and Sam Sandweiss, with Peter Phok and David Marmor on board as executive producers.
While the film's theatrical release date may be canceled due to the coronavirus, 1BR will still be released on digital on April 24th.
