THE ROOM - Official Trailer.
Matt (Kevin Janssens) and Kate (Olga Kurylenko), a young couple, move to Westminster, Maryland having purchased a secluded manor. While renovating, they discover a large, steel door that leads to an empty room. After experiencing frequent electrical shortages, the couple call an electrician to learn that the wiring in the home is a large, tangled mass that runs along the walls and floorboards of the property. As the electrician drives off, he exclaims his surprise that the property finally sold considering the previous owners were murdered on site.
That evening, Matt finds himself unable to sleep and ends up drinking while researching the murder. He learns that the killer is a "John Doe", i.e. his identity is not known, and that he is still alive, in a psychiatric hospital. He stumbles into the room and drunkenly wishes for another bottle of alcohol, which the room promptly grants him. The next morning, Kate finds Matt in the room surrounded by many expensive paintings. He encourages her to wish for money- and she does, wishing for millions. Over the next several days, the couple quit their jobs and party in the room, which continuously grants their wishes and desires.
Kate begins to fall into depression when she realizes that nothing they wish for has any real value, stating that she can just get "another, and another, and another". To cheer her up, Matt tells her he wants to try for a child, but she becomes angry, reminding him of her two previous miscarriages. She exclaims that she can't put herself through that pain again and storms out of the room. Matt walks past the bedroom moments later to discover that in her sadness, Kate used the room to wish for a son. Panicked, he tells her that what she has done is wrong and that she needs to force the room to take it back. When the couple is unable to bring themselves to wish away the child, Matt leaves the home in search of John Doe (John Flanders).
