From the distributor that brought you Sator and Disappearance at Clifton Hill, Lightbulb Film Distribution is delighted to share the poster and trailer for a new claustrophobic thriller, The Oak Room. Following its world premiere at Fantasia, the UK premiere took place at Grimmfest in October. It is a sinister thriller from Black Fawn Films (the team behind I’ll Take Your Dead and Vicious Fun). Directed by Cody Calahan (Let Her Out) the film stars RJ Mitte (Breaking Bad), Peter Outerbridge (V-Wars), and Ari Millen (Orphan Black).
Synopsis for The Oak Room
During a raging snowstorm, a drifter (RJ Mitte) offers to settle a debt with a grizzled bartender by telling him a story. The night’s events quickly spiral into a dark tale of deceit, mistaken identity and shocking violence.
Commenting on the release, Matthew Kreuzer, Commercial Director at Lightbulb Film Distribution, said: “The Oak Room was one of the highlights of Fantasia last year, and we are thrilled to be bringing this dark thriller to UK, Ireland, and ANZ audiences in April. The film is both haunting and disturbing in equal measure and RJ Mitte’s performance is outstanding.”
The Oak Room will be released on digital download from April 26 in the UK, from April 27 in Canada (Black Fawn Distribution), and from April 28 (also Lightbulb Film Distribution) in Australia and New Zealand. #TheOakRoom
