ROOM 213

Category: Edition 2017

Summer vacation after 6th grade and Elvira, 12, is going on a camp. She and her two roommates Meja and Bea will stay in room 213, where no one has lived for sixty years. Soon inexplicable events start to happen. A letter with an ancient handwriting leads the girls to an old lady in a run-down house in the woods.

Director’s statement
“Making Room 213, the most important issue for me, has been to tell a thrilling ghost story with the same seriousness and sincerity, that horror stories are told, during middle school age, when at the threshold of entering ones teens - too smart to be called a kid, but not quite ready to grow up”.
