Storyline

Donald Koch, a.k.a. "Don", "King Don" and "Tiger", moves from Chicago to the suburbs since his wife Liz is pregnant and they believe the location is adequate to raise a family with children. Liz buys an old house and Don, who is unemployed, goes with his dog Cooper first to renovate the house. Soon he learns from his neighbor Ellie Mueller that the house was a brothel many years ago. Then he meets another neighbor, the sexy Sarah Yates, and they have sex in the house. When Sarah returns to visit him, he says that their affair was a mistake since he is married and asks her to not come back again. On the weekend, his friend Milo Stone comes to help Don in the renovation. But soon the house shows supernatural events and Milo, Don and Liz learn that the place is haunted with a sordid past.

Trivia

Near the start of the film, Don is shown opening a bottle of beer. Phil Brooks, who plays Don, is 'straight edge', meaning he refuses to drink alcohol or any other recreational drug. See more »

Goofs

At about the 45 minute mark, Don is on the phone to Liz on a video call. He's clearly using the rear phone camera as he's showing her the freshly-decorated wall & smoothing it down yet she sees Sarah walk across the room behind him, implying use of the front phone camera on the call. See more »

Stylistically Well Done Hit&Miss Haunted House Horror
25 October 2019 | by TwistedContentSee all my reviews

I was quite excited for this one, the trailer looked promising, a friend got me interested in seeing C. M. Punk and even the poster's pretty nice. While I certainly dig the movies aesthethic and some other elements, "Girl on the Third Floor" has its share of flaws.

Don Koch (C. M. Punk), an ex conman with past alcohol related issues, starts single handedly renovating an old house he bought while waiting for his pregnant wife come to the new home from the city, there's also a friend who comes to help him, a neighbourly pastor who seems to knows something & a seductive young girl. Story's fairly simple and not exactly original, although things take a turn just before the 3rd act & I'm not quite sure what to think of it still. There's some mystery in it allright. One guy said the 3rd act just doesn't work - I'll admit it was risky, but I didn't mind it that much. Acting's fine for the most part, but I 'm not sure if C. M. Punk has the guts for serious acting, he was kinda (pleasantly) funny in this, but during the first 5-10 minutes I was questioning his skills. An undeniable strong suit of this movie is its production design and cinematography, soundtrack's positively amusing as well. Heavy use of practical effects, effective camera work and a crisp look that showed off the house just the right way.

It's hard to find "Girl on the Third Floor" either scary or very funny, but it was a certainly (for the lack of a better word) amusing and aesthetically pleasant expierence for a horror buff such as myself. Keeping in mind that this is a directional debute, I'm interested in seeing what comes next from Travis Stevens. As far as modern indies go, this one's slightly above average. My rating: 6/10.
