The issue seems to be caused by a graphical effect in that room. I turned all my settings to low and set the resolution as low as possible, went through the hallway, and saved at the save room nearby. Then I switched my resolution and graphics settings back and tried to walk back into the room and it loaded without a crash.
However, I set my graphics settings back to what they were, and then rebooted the game to see if the issue was solved. Entering the room from the save point side still crashes. So it seems a temporary solution might be to turn your graphics settings to low, go through the room, and then change them back and don't reboot the game.
I didn't test every option thoroughly to see if any one graphics setting was responsible, but hopefully this will help someone.
BTW, the room in question is circled in red in the link below. Does anyone know the best way to send a ticket to the devs, instead of just a forum post?
(the forums image uploader isnt working and it won't let me post a link, so you'll have to put punctuation in yourself)

You are correct I put all my graphics setting on the lowest value and I was able to enter the room without the game crashing. I may experiment later to see what exactly causes it. But if you want to get past the room just nuke the graphics.
