A new trailer and one-sheet have arrived to celebrate the impending theatrical release of Al Bravo Studios and Chemical Mind Studios' new thriller '2 Bedroom 1 Bath'. We must stress that this is in no way connected to the Lionsgate's thriller '2 Br/1 Ba' which stars Alexa Vega ('Machete Kills') and Kathryn Morris even though both titles are concerningly similar. The psychological thriller from writer/director Stanley Yung focuses on a couple whose new 'dream home' isn't quite what they were expecting, particularly highlighted on the new poster by the statment 'Evil Lives Here.' Here's betting that wasn't mentioned on the original listing. The flick stars Michelle Hicks, Andrew W. Walker, Eric Roberts, Costas Mandylor and Dee Wallace. Check out the goods below. »
