“…provides wholesome entertainment with hardly a nasty shock” Review by Clarence Tsui (The Hollywood Reporter)
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. The lady tells them that a girl died at the camp sixty years ago. And since then a red-haired girl in a white dress has been sneaking around in the corridors at night.
Emelie Lindblom is a Swedish scriptwriter and director, graduated from the School of Film Directing, Gothenburg University in 2011. Her latest short 2 was in competition at Gothenburg International Film Festival 2014 and was called a “masterpiece” at Seoul International Women’s Film Festival 2015. Room 213 is her debut feature film.
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 storys 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.
