Vacancy

Starring: Luke Wilson, Kate Beckinsale, Frank Whaley, Ethan Embry

I actually liked this movie more than I thought I would.  It was a bit original, compared to some of these other ‘slasher’ flicks we’ve been inundated with lately.  It was definitely a short film, so no complaints of it dragging.  The movie moved quickly, had a decent story, and was surprisingly well acted.  You may know by now what I’m going to say about that…. another example of a movie that would have been mediocre, but with good actors in even the smallest of roles, it turned out much better!  I don’t want to ruin the end for anyone, but let’s just say I thought it was a refreshing change from the recent depressing slasher flicks endings where the bad guys always come back in the end and win…. this one has a happier ending, and I’ll leave it at that.  I give this movie three out of five stars, for the originality and the happy change in endings from the recent norm.  Definitely not for kids… please, have a soul!!  :)

  1. Quite a short review.

    I, too, found that I didn’t expect much from this film going in and was pleasantly surprised at its departure from a lot of cliches. However, I couldn’t be more bored with Kate Beckinsale. She’s not a bad actress, I simply find her blah in roles where she’s playing the “every woman”. In fact, this film came up the other day and I couldn’t remember who played the lead female.

    Not a bad review, but much too short.

    I very much loved this movie, Luke Wilson doesn’t play in many horror/thiller type movies but this one is very good for him, Kate Beckinsale also very good, the chemistry between Luke and Kate is awsome. the plot is a seperating couple (Wilson & Beckinsale) are traveling down a road in the middle of nowhere when the car breaks down by a garage, the guy that works there “fixes” the car and it breaks down again, this time they find a hotel by the garage, when they get in their room they find they got alot more then they paid for. Amazing acting, awsome cast, Sweet movie.
