19 Doors
(2011)

Starring: Bill Laing, Natalie Bail, Norm Wash, Lake Asbury
DIR: Bruce Koehler





Blurb: When a producer suggests that screenwriter Grace Mitchel pen a horror story set in an old hotel, the long-abandoned Lyndora seems the perfect inspiration. The turn-of-the-century hotel is known for its rough and seedy past -the doors to its rooms sealed 50 years ago following a series of gruesome murders - and local lore says it’s haunted.

Despite the reservations of family and friends, an undaunted Grace takes up residence in the eerie inn to immerse herself in writing… But now that the doors are open, the secrets of the past begin to emerge.

As disturbing, but seemingly explicable, events begin to escalate, Grace struggles to define reality from insanity and begins a descent into darkness from which some will never return.

Scene 28: Dean finds her in the kitchen and points out her nose is bleeding. He also points out the marks on her face, but she brushes him off and mentions her passing out.

He’s mildly concerned, but then he’s shocked at seeing the bottle of booze in their room. It was a full bottle, now it’s three quarters-ish empty. He questions whether she went on a bender while he was sleeping. She’s moody about it and about how he’s apparently a teetotaler.
