Les chambres rouges

For his third feature film, Canadian filmmaker Pascal Plante moves into the dark corners of the interwebs and with Les chambres rouges (Red Rooms). Coming off Les faux tatouages (Berlinale ’18), and the 2020 Cannes selected Nadia, Butterfly (check out our interview with him), this shot in Montreal psychological suspense film focuses on two young women who are obsessed with serial killer series. Juliette Gariépy (You Can Live Forever) and Laurie Babin topline the French language project which went into production this past autumn with Nemesis Films’ Dominique Dussault producing with Plante for a second time out.

Gist: Two young women play the role of groupies fascinated by the trial of a serial killer. One of them will find it increasingly difficult to maintain her psychological balance, in particular by diving into the underground web (dark web) in search of the missing video of the murder of one of the victims with whom she has a disturbing resemblance.

Release Date/Prediction: We see this receiving a Midnight Madness slot at TIFF followed by genre film festival circuit with stops at Fantastic Fest and Sitges.
