Written and Directed by Martin Sharpe

The Crimson Room is an experience like no other.
A young couple prepare for their new life together as they await the arrival of their firstborn child, when an impulsive stop along a bustling laneway leads them down a path that could ultimately tear them apart and change their lives forever. A dark and sometimes frightening journey to places we’d rather not travel, The Crimson Room is a visceral and thought provoking experience that will stay with you for days.
