    A pretty bad excuse for a suspense flick. Just a bunch of "Vacancy" wanna-be's with a very poor script...nothing even happens in the entire movie. This is garbage, go watch something more real like "Vacancy," or "Hostel."

    I appreciate what they were trying to do here, but none of it worked. Sadly, the only achievement in this film is that the actors could keep a straight face.

    Now here is a different and intriguing psychological thriller that's more keen on delivering an novel story and suspense than anyhting else. The film opens with a couple played by Jamie-Lynn Sigler and Josh Stewart who give modest performances on a road trip to a wedding who get into a minor crash and decide to stop at a motel to get some rest then strange things start to happen that unlocks dark secrets within themselves. The movie is never scary, action packed or thrilling but it was unsettling, creepy, atmospheric and suspenseful like putting togething a puzzle or trying to solve a mystery novel before your done reading it and it's definitely different from the norm but at the same time it treads familiar territory. The movie starts out like Vacancy then changes to a Twilight Zone episode then a little bit of Passengers and Flatliners but enough creativeness to stand on it's own. The movie has a very slow pace and the beginning was confusing until you figure out what is going and how the stories and characters are connected. I really liked the ending because something comes good out of the tense, depressing and unsettling story and I was satisfied with the movie as a whole for the effort and the idea alone, kudos! Overall the look of the movie was simple, direct to dvd like but the story and the outcome is strong enough to recommend at least one veiwing. More of a 2.5 stars out of 5 stars.
