First look at the upcoming J-Horror adaptation.

Based on Nanami Kamon’s Japanese novel, director Ben Jagger's Room 203 sees two young friends move into a new apartment, only to discover it has a sinister history that threatens to repeat itself.

The film stars Francesca Xuereb, Viktoria Vinyarska and Eric Wiegand.

"At the emotional core of this story, the characters are dealing with guilt and are trying to find redemption for past and present mistakes that fracture the foundations of friendship, family and love," says Jagger of his film. "When I began making this movie, it was always my hope that the audience would be invested by the emotional drama of the story and that the horror would serve as amplification for the conflict that these characters are going through in their daily lives. I grew up on '70s and '80s horror movies and there was just something unsettling about the tone and aesthetic of the horror films from those eras. In my experience, every director on their independent project is faced with a plethora of challenges which forces them to become a better filmmaker in the process. Working on Room 203 will always be special to me because of the people who banded together during an uncertain time where the world seemed stuck with no sense of direction, yet we made it happen from our shared love of making movies."

Room 203 is in US cinemas and VOD from April 15th. A UK/ROI release has yet to be announced.

Check out the trailer and poster below.

The official synopsis reads:

After lifelong friends Kim and Izzy move into Room 203, a quirky apartment with a creepy medieval stained glass window, Kim slowly becomes convinced that their new home may be haunted. With help from her new boyfriend Ian, Kim investigates the tortured history of the apartment, discovering a string of disappearances of former residents, a murder mystery from half a century ago, and an ancient curse that threatens to possess Izzy and kill Kim.
