The upcoming Louisiana-based horror film Room and Board is written and directed by Julia Davis and produced by her husband, Louisiana native BJ Davis. The movie concerns a popular bed and breakfast owned by a “deceptively attractive group of Russian women.”
The meat-cleaving matriarch of the family dies, leaving her bloody legacy to a gorgeous but conniving offspring. Natasha, a dancing, singing, blade-wielding psychopath, leads the way to hell, along with her seductive and macabre daughters, Masha and Sasha. Guests are lured to the establishment by rumours of the best steak in town. The family starts by serving their unsuspecting guests – and later serving them up on a plate.
