“A little bit of Twilight Zone with [The] Shining mixed together”
– Emmanuel Vouniozos, cinematographer
Well. That’s a heckuva draw for me. So’s the fact that Lance Henriksen is in this film. Synopsis!
‘Monday At 11:01 A.M.’ is a suspense thriller starring Charles Agron as Michael and Lauren Shaw as Jenny, a young couple who find themselves in a beautiful yet eerie mountain town where everyone seems strangely familiar. While Jenny busies herself in the small antique shops – Michael wanders into the local watering hole. The bartender (Lance Henriksen) dares Michael to check out Olivia (Briana Evigan), a sultry brunette in the corner. After a drink, Michael takes him up on the offer and moves to sit next to her. The two begin an ominous flirtation with Olivia slipping him her phone number. Michael and Jenny decide to stay overnight at the dimly lit and aging hotel. During the night Michael is jolted out of bed when he hears frantic screams from another room. When he calls the front desk for help, he is met with cold indifference. No one believes him including Jenny. As his hallucinations become more real through a series of horrific events, Michael finds himself desperately trying to walk the line between reality and the terror that awaits him.
I’m getting a The Wicker Man vibe as well (no, not the horrible remake. The good one. The original.) And, of course, “Hotel California” from the Eagles. Plus, loving Briana Evigan’s “Evil Phryne Fisher” look. Check out the trailer below. Monday at 11:01 A.M. is already avaiable for you iTunes horror nerds. Everyone else will need to wait ’til Friday to check it out at theaters or on VOD.
