Room is a 2005 dramatic thriller, written and directed by Kyle Henry. The movie stars Julia Barker (Cyndi Williams), a typical woman who faces mounting stress and eventually becomes tormented by psychic visions of the unknown. Julia and her husband (Kenneth Wayne Bradley) live in Houston, Texas, where they are on the brink of financial disaster. The family is basically living from paycheck to paycheck. As Julia struggles to bring in enough income to meet the financial needs of her family, she puts their needs over her personal wants, and becomes worn down to the point of not recognizing herself in the mirror. These burdens and stress begin to catch up to her when she starts to experience waves of migraine headaches; these blackouts eventually develop into full-blown visions where Julia sees unknown and seemingly random images: rippling water, wooden rafters, and stark white windows of a large desolate room, a space as mysterious and inviting as it is menacing. As these visions increase in intensity, Julia makes a sequence of irrational decisions and suddenly leaves for New York City. Once there, she checks into a motel and focuses all her effort on locating the mysterious room from her visions.

Metacritic Score

  • 75

    New York Post V.A. Musetto

    The plot of the indie feature Room is, shall we say, sketchy. But that's a minor annoyance thanks to a gutsy performance by Cyndi Williams and vibrating cinematography by P.J. Raval.

    The New York Times

    Room is an existential horror film, a parable of the war against terror being waged in Julia's psyche.

    Variety Scott Foundas

    A perceptive, unsettling psychodrama marking the assured feature writing and directing debut of shorts filmmaker Kyle Henry.
