After a failed suicide attempt, Michael reluctantly begins to make friends in the psych ward where he wakes up. Fellow patients Hunter, Joe, and Rachel explain the hospital’s urban legend - a malevolent entity named Hattie haunts their halls, latching herself to patients who attempt suicide but don’t leave a note. When Michael becomes Hattie's next target, he must stop her before she kills everyone he makes a connection with.
Mental Health and Film
Director's Note: The Quiet Room tackles issues of mental health, a subject close to my heart. Often times in film, particularly the horror genre, people suffering from mental illness are misrepresented or worse; villainized. This story features an unlikely group of outcasts coming together to overcome a seemingly impossible force. The Quiet Room is not intended to encompass everyone's story, but it does tell my own. There is hope even in the darkest of places. If you or someone you know is thinking about suicide, please reach out to these resources.
