Today, we’re happy to debut the trailer for Apartment 212, a new horror thriller about a woman trying to start a new life without getting eaten alive in the process. Jennifer Conrad is a small-town girl headed to the big city after escaping an abusive relationship, but when she moves into an apartment complex full of colorful characters, Jennifer discovers a new set of challenges that come with her new life, including the mysterious welts spreading over her body every time she wakes up.
Previously titled “Gnaw”, the film made the rounds through the genre festival circuit last year and scooped up a few awards along the way, including Best Horror Feature at Shriekfest, Best FX at Sin City and Best Feature at Other Worlds Austin.
Directed and co-written by Haylar Garcia (An American Terror), Apartment 212 stars Penelope Mitchell (Hemlock Grove), Sally Kirkland (Trash Fire), Chris Johnson (47 Meters Down), and Kyle Gass of Tenacious D fame (That’s telekinesis, Kyle!). The film arrives in theaters, on VOD and Digital HD on March 16. Watch our exclusive trailer debut below.
Here’s the official synopsis for Apartment 212:
“Jennifer Conrad is a small-town girl starting over in the big city. Fleeing an abusive relationship, all she wants is a chance to begin again. But it is hard to start over when something is eating you while you sleep…one painful bite at a time.”
