Extra Info

Gretchen hates herself and wants to die. She just found out she’s gonna have to say goodbye to all her friends in the US to move with her estranged father’s new family – whom apart from a last name she has nothing in common with – to some resort in the German Alps. At night in her most vivid, Technicolor nightmares she pictures her new life gaily frolicking about the mountain meadows in pure THE SOUND OF MUSIC fashion and wakes up screaming with cold sweat yodeling down her cheeks… But reality is even uglier! The resort’s like a carbon-copy of the Overlook Hotel, with those same musty, mahogany, out of time interiors and that same faint air of madness hanging over the place. That last part is mostly imbued by the eccentric owner, Herr König, a slick creep with a thick Teutonic accent that exudes a certain Bond villain aura. And then she starts getting nightmares again, of a different kind this time, featuring a screeching blond-wigged woman that haunts her even during her waking hours. And yes, again reality is going to turn out uglier, filled with blood, ectoplasmic goo and the beady red eyes of a nameless creature piercing through the night…

If you thought Tilman Singer’s LUZ was pretty insane, well then don’t forget to take your meds before the screening, because his first feature was just a warm-up to all the horror madness he’s got in store for you now! Off-the-wall surrealism and visceral violence await EUPHORIA star Hunter Schafer as she takes on Dan Stevens (ABIGAIL – BIFFF 2024, THE GUEST – BIFFF 2015) chewing scenery as the slithering König and the secrets he holds in his macabre hotel…
