Indie Trailer Sunday: Hotel Room Anthology Feature 'Do Not Disturb'
Five Directors. Five Stories. One Room. No it's not another Buried or Saw, but it is a unique indie worth checking out. Today's trailer is for an anthology film called Do Not Disturb put together and conceived by producer Mali Elfman. Warner Premiere is releasing Do Not Disturb straight-to-VOD this summer, but I'm breaking our rules to feature this not only because I'm friends with Mali, but because I've seen this and it's great project with some unique shorts that form an entertaining film overall. Each director was given a brief synopsis, eight rules to follow, and one day on set to create their film. And Do Not Disturb is the result.
Watch the official trailer for Warner Premiere's Do Not Disturb:

Five directors tackle five short stories that are all tied together in one sweet, dark, twisted, humorous film about what goes on behind the door of Room 316. This was filmed at a sound stage in Los Angeles last year.
Do Not Disturb contains five various short stories directed by Eric Balfour (segment "Duccios Madonna"), Laura Henry (segment "Prom"), Jon Mann-Krieger (segment "Intrinsic"), Brandon Nicholas (segment "Death Takes a Holiday Inn") and Petro Papahadjopoulos (segment "Rocketman"). It contains music by Danny Elfman and a cast including Diva Zappa, Eric Balfour, Troy Garity and Maureen Flannigan. Warner Premiere will be bringing Do Not Disturb to On-Demand services starting on May 1st this summer.

Ok im not the one to ever be a downer...and I always try to find something positive to say about everything...but this looks beyond terrible. The only thing that could make this trailer any worse is to have Tommy Wiseau in it.

Tommy wiseau makes everything 100x better. Fact.

I actually think this looks interesting. The idea behind it all is what is so intriguing. Did the directors have any idea of what the other directors were doing with their pieces?

The trailer is weak since I have no idea what's going on, but I'm into the concept of the movie and the fact that they had rules/one day to shoot their piece. I'll give it a shot if I ever come across it.

This is exciting, it deserves acknowledgment for being original at least. And I actually liked the trailer, a lil amateurish, but its nice to see a trailer that doesn't give away the whole story for once.

I'll pass but if you want to see something along the same line check out Four Rooms.

First Kelly McGillis looking like a great grandma in that Stake Land trailer.....and now Evie (Maureen Flannigan) from the "Out of the World" tv show in this trailer. It must be "chicks I've jagged to in the 80's" day.

Looks pretty decent. I like the "rules" aspect and the restrictions.

Not the best trailer in the world, but definitely not the worst I've seen. At least they didn't give away the whole film in the preview, I'll check it out. Thanks for posting.
