Watch the first trailer to the new psychological horror film, There Is No Door, from Chicago, Illinois-based writer/director, Ward Crockett, and at first you might think of Stanley Kubrick’s The Shining, but by the end (actually somewhere in the middle when things usually start to come together in a trailer) you’ll be left wondering what the hell you just watched. And what the hell the deal is with the door.
Well, let’s get some background. For There Is No Door, Crocket takes his personal experiences with the harrowing illness of depression and concocts a dark and spooky world in the film. Here’s what he had to say:
Two years ago, a friend of mine committed suicide. This came as a complete shock to me, and, as is so often the case, I only found out after the fact that he had struggled with depression for much of his life. This started me reflecting on how depression has run in my own family for generations, more specifically on how the suicide of an ancestor of mine was kept quiet and often alluded to as an accident. As a filmmaker I wanted to find a way to cope with and understand my conflicting feelings about these events, and what eventually surfaced was a story that explores how depression is swept under the rug, hushed in conversations, and kept secret from people outside and even within a family. That story is this film—There Is No Door.

The further she sinks into her depression, the more often she sees a mysterious door that intermittently appears in the hallway where her uncle vanished many years before…
