“Girl on the Third Floor is stuck in my brain and I can’t quite shake it. Please watch this movie. It gave me a sense of unease unlike any film I’ve seen in recent memory,” one person tweeted.
“@CMPunk just finished Girl on the Third Floor. It’s so refreshing to see a haunted house flick that’s actually unique and original. Can’t just guess all the story beats, and it gradually builds a creepy atmosphere rather than hitting you over the head with jump scares. Top notch,” commented another.
What makes Girl on the Third Floor even creepier is the fact that it’s not entirely fictional, Bloody Disgusting reports. The movie was shot in a house in Frankfort, Illinois that has a history of paranormal activity, which director Travis Stevens chose to include in the film.
