Oh boy, will you look at that evil eye? If nothing else, this cheese-tastic trailer for the B-grade horror "The Butterfly Room" proves legendary scream queen Barbara Steele can send chills down an Eskimo's back with one icy glare. Watch the 74-year-old English actress as a seemingly normal elderly woman whose weird obsession with butterflies starts to manifest some unusual behavior. This includes getting too attached to her next-door neighbor's young daughter and scaring the hell out of Ray Wise.
Steele, whose acting credits include Mario Bava's Black Sunday, Roger Corman's The Pit and the Pendulum and Joe Dante's Piranha, is joined by a plethora of cult horror actresses, including A Nightmare on Elm Street's Heather Langenkamp, The Texas Chainsaw Massacre's Erica Leerhsen, and I Spit on Your Grave's Camille Keaton. The movie, written and directed by Jonathan Zarantonello, is currently without an official release date.
Ann, a reclusive elegant lady, with an obsession for butterflies, is surprisingly befriended by the eerily beautiful young Alice. Using her seductive innocence, Alice establishes a disturbing mother daughter relationship with Ann. Lured into her twisted world, Ann soon discovers that she is not the only recipient of the girl's affections. Confronted by Alice's other lady friends, Ann's shock awakens a dark, hidden past, unchaining a spiral of madness: a series of brutal and bizarre crimes that Ann will have to commit to preserve her harmless and deceptive appearances. The only one who recognizes there's something unsettling about Ann, is nine year old Julie, her next door neighbor's daughter ...
