ARROW has just released Stefan Lernous‘ Hotel Poseidon, which screened at the Fantasia International Film Festival and Grimmfest.
Hotel Poseidon is now streaming with a host of exclusive extras, including an audio commentary with director Stefan Lernous; an introduction by Tine Van den Wyngaert, Check-in Time: Stefan Lernous chats to Jonas Govarts, writer-director of Cub, Of Cats & Women, chats with director Stefan Lernous in this feature-length discussion of the film, hotel movies, Abattoir Fermé and more; Fantasia International Film Festival 2021 live-streamed Q&A with Stefan Lernous, hosted by Justine Smith; the party scene rehearsal; and a deleted scene.
“David reluctantly pretends to be the manager of Hotel Poseidon, where fungus covers the walls and comments such as “faded glory” and “has seen better times” completely fall short to describe this establishment. He wanders the corridors of his personal Overlook Hotel like a zombie, being a passive spectator to what happens around him. Whether it’s clients without cash, his mother castrating him with her sharp tongue, or the recently deceased aunt in the hallway whose pension kept the place going. David will gradually lose his balance and tumble into a waking nightmare, in which his hotel is transformed into an existential purgatory. With inner demons on the booze, lustful creatures tempting his lonely soul to sin, and a big plunge into the proverbial metaphysical shithole, David can expect some strong comments on Trip Advisor.”
