In the Room is a 2015 Hong Kong-Singaporean erotic drama film directed by Eric Khoo and written by Khoo and Jonathan Lim. The film stars Josie Ho, George Young, Daniel Jenkins, Koh Boon Pin, W Leon U, Show Nishino, Lawrence Wong, Nadia AR, and Ian Tan.

The film comprises six different stories of couples in a single-room brothel at a hotel in Singapore, spread over several decades.[3] The film is marked as Singapore's first erotic film.[3] At the same time, Khoo downplays the film's erotic themes, calling its ode to the national cultural trends "a look at Singapore through the decades. It's a homage to the country". Khoo dedicated the film to the late horror writer Damien Sin, who wrote Khoo's career-launching Mee Pok Man(1995).[4]

Six different stories of six couples in a particular room in a hotel in Singapore. The story starts just after the surrender of the British to Japanese troops in Singapore in 1942. Six stories of six different Japanese, British, and Chinese couples are set in the same hotel room, spread over several decades.
