First Trailer for D.J. Caruso's New Horror 'The Disappointments Room'
Relativity has released a trailer for a surprise horror film that's coming out in the next few weeks, titled The Disappointments Room, which we haven't heard much about until now. Kate Beckinsale stars, along with Duncan Joiner, as a mother and her young son who move to their dream home but discover a creepy room in the attic. Upon opening it, they unleash "unimaginable horrors". This trailer doesn't actually show any of those horrors, as it pretty much stops when she opens the door. The full cast includes Lucas Till, Gerald McRaney, Michaela Conlin, Michael Landes and Mel Raido. Give this a quick watch below.
Here's the first official trailer for D.J. Caruso's The Disappointments Room, originally from Yahoo:
When a mother and her young son move into their rural dream house, they accidentally unlock a hidden room in the attic and unleash unprecedented horror. The Disappointments Room is directed by American filmmaker D.J. Caruso, of the movies The Salton Sea, Two for the Money, Disturbia, Eagle Eye, I Am Number Four and Standing Up previously. The screenplay is written by actor-writer Wentworth Miller, of the script for Park Chan-wook's Stoker previously. Relativity Media will release The Disappointments Room in US theaters starting September 9th next month. The film is actually rated R. Anyone interested in this?

bit of an unwieldy title isn't it

Pass. I will just go check out Kidman in THE OTHERS again.

Oh that was good. But it was also made by Amenabar. In times he made good movies ...

A lot of ghost stories were scary because people were not so clever and superstitious in the past. How many more haunted house movies really need to be made? Infinite amounts, I know.

Tobe Hooper's Poltergeist is still effective 30 years or so after its release. if ghost movies are lame nowadays, it's because directors at the helm are lame. I think (white) people are viscerally in need to scare themselves one way or another. That's why they go to theme parks for some adrenaline trip, or to practice some extreme sports and activities.

D.J. Caruso made one of the best modern noir movies with the Salton Sea. However, his followup efforts have been primarily mediocre and lackluster. I like this trailer, but it doesn't seem any different from 100's of the other haunted house horror movies from the past 10 years. Little kids laughing, old fashioned photography, a Ring-like phantom girl in the poster. I wish people would stop buying tickets to this regurgitated garbage, and they'll stop recycling lackluster horror movies. RANT END

Boo!...Embarrassed to say, but I'll go watch Kate Beckinsale in most anything...and now she's a blonde? Oh yea.....sorry...but she's got to be one of the most attractive and beautiful women in the world. I'd hate to actually meet her as I'm 95% percent certain it would totally shatter my fantasies of her. Believe me, I know. They never match what you've got in you head about them...never!..lol..

I believe Kate Beckinsale herself was aware how awful that is this going to be bad, but I guess she had to take that job. As said, I am not scared but I am impressed with her beauty. Since that funny and entertaining film, 'Shooting Fish'...

Why even watch this dribble after seeing that trailer? How about they just cut to the chase and show us everything.

All these big budgeted contemporary horror movies do very little for me, but at least the lack of CGI in this one (so far) is mildly encouraging. Also, why is Kate so heavily made up in this film?

Jeez does she actually ever age. Are we sure Selene isn't actually playing Kate Beckinsale to fool us all.
