"This house has a history of bringing out the worst in people." Dark Sky Films has released an official trailer for an indie horror thriller titled Girl on the Third Floor, the feature directorial debut of veteran indie producer Travis Stevens (of Snowfort Pictures). This received some rave reviews from SXSW where it premiered earlier this year, and will likely be a sleeper hit once it opens in theaters this fall. Professional wrestler / superstar grammar slammer "CM Punk" stars as Don Koch, a man tries to renovate a rundown Victorian mansion, only to learn that the house has other plans. Also starring Trieste Kelly Dunn, Sarah Brooks, Elissa Dowling, Karen Woditsch, Travis Delgado, and Marshall Bean. This seriously looks like one of the most creative, clever, twisted, scary ass modern twists on a "haunted house" film. Holy crap.
Here's the official trailer (+ poster) for Travis Stevens' Girl on the Third Floor, direct from YouTube:
Don Koch (Phil "CM Punk" Brooks) tries to renovate a rundown mansion with a sordid history for his growing family, only to learn that the house has other plans. Girl on the Third Floor is both written and directed by veteran American indie producer / filmmaker Travis Stevens, founder and CEO of Snowfort Pictures. This is his feature directorial debut after producing numerous other features including A Horrible Way to Die, Cheap Thrills, and Mohawk. Based on a story by Paul Johnstone and Ben Parker. This first premiered at the SXSW Film Festival earlier this year, and will also play at the Fantasy Filmfest in Germany. Dark Sky will release Girl on the Third Floor in select theaters + on VOD starting on October 25th this fall.
Phil Brooks looks like a much better actor than a MMA fighter.

I can't wait for the flood of animated gifs where Mickey Mouse, other wrestlers, MMA fighters, etc are spliced into the trailer and terrorize poor Phil. In all fairness, good luck to Mr. Brooks and I hope this movie does well.

Terrible title but you go CM Punk, I didn't know he had the chops. How many chops do you really need to make a horror film though. He looks good on the screen. I thought he was a little bit Jon Hamm and a little bit Bruce Campbell.

At first glance I thought that screen capture for the article WAS Jon Hamm! I've been watching pro wrestling for a long time and seen the (WWE) debut and tenure of Dwayne Johnson, John Cena, Dave Bautista and CM Punk. The all have had IT factor, presence and natural charisma to succeed in any form of entertainment, and I would definitely put Phil Brooks in the that group (talent wise). Obviously Dwayne, Dave, and John have really come a long way since their big screen debut, and that's from years and years of dedication and hard work. If Phil puts in the time and effort I have no doubts he can achieve a great deal of success as an actor.

I could only agree! I hope the movie ends up being watchable. He should be doing action flicks though...like something like remaking The Saint possibly (if not the title role, a well written villan), which I did like but I'm sure its time to do it up again 🙂

Action-comedy. His mugging for the camera was legendary in WWE.
