March is a busy month for releases at 101 Films, with a Blu-ray release for a recent horror that was a big hit on the 2019 festival circuit, blu-ray debuts for a pair of under-seen early ’80s sci-fi movies with strong pedigree, and the early ’70s coming-of-age drama that gave Sylvester Stallone his break.
WWE legend Phil “CM Punk” Brooks stars in this bloody and demented haunted house tale from one of the strongest voices in modern indie-horror, Travis Stevens.
Bursting pipes, rotting walls, and unidentifiable slime were not what Don Koch (Phil Brooks) expected when he convinced his wife Liz (Trieste Kelly Dunn) that he could rehab their new Victorian home himself. In over his head, under duress, and tempted by his old weaknesses, Don soon discovers that the house has its own dark, sordid history and won’t be so easy to renovate after all…
Girl on the Third Floor is available 9th March on Blu-ray from 101 Films.
