The Disappointments Room

type
  • Movie

Many recent horror films have blurred the lines between supernatural scares and mental illness; The Babadook did it effectively, Lights Out somewhat less so. The latest addition to the category is director D.J. Caruso’s The Disappointments Room, which you can see exclusive photos from below.

Named after the Victorian tradition of keeping disabled children hidden away in secret rooms, the film features Kate Beckinsale as Donna, a woman who moves to a country estate with her husband (Mel Raido) and son (Duncan Joiner). Things start out just vaguely creepy (is there any other way for a derelict mansion to appear onscreen?) and then get very creepy when Donna discovers a room not included on the house’s floor plan. When she finds a box of old keys, she becomes obsessed with trying to use them to open the door. Her son’s response? “Don’t get sick again, Mommy.”

The photos from the film hint at Donna’s spiral into obsession and horror, as well as the toll it starts to take on her husband and son. Lucas Till and Gerald McRaney are also featured in the film, though their roles remain enigmatic. Possibly helpful (or haunting) neighbors?

See the photos and the trailer, which debuted on Yahoo, below. The film hits theaters Sep. 9.
