Posted By James Walsh on 02/06/19


The SXSW Film Festival announced this week that the new horror film starring former WWE Superstar CM Punk, The Girl on the Third Floor, will screen at the festival as part of the Midnighter series. You can check out a new trailer for the film below.

The SXSW screening of the film is scheduled for Sunday, March 10 at the Lamar Alamo Drafthouse. Additional screenings will be held on March 12 and 15. Hereís an official synopsis for the picture:

ďAt the heart of the film is Don Koch (CM Punk), a man who is failing as a husband. For years he has skated by on charm and charisma, until it nearly landed him in jail. He now views fixing up an old house as a chance to make up for past mistakes. Meanwhile, his wife, Liz Koch, is concerned about the renovation timeline as they have a baby on the way. With all this pressure itís no wonder Don responds to the flirtations of an attractive stranger. As Don tears the house apart, it begins to tear him apart as well, revealing the rot behind the drywall.Ē
