Worthy of watching, creative horror film
7/10 Here's an original, clever little horror film. It's a really good film that captivated and intrigued me all the way through.6 months ago
The thing that I appreciated the most about it is the hard hitting, raw, real, honest, and creative dialogue. I've seen a lot of films and most of them have dialogue that is so normal and cliched and ordinary that it doesn't grab my attention. But this film is different, this film has dialogue which always captivated me, and always forced me to pay attention(in a good way) to this film. The other thing which is spectacular and outstanding about this film is the out there and, original story. I loved the raw story. Another thing which makes this an impressive film is the unusually and uncommonly dark and hard hitting atmosphere which is due to the dark story, the dark settings, and the dark set ups. Also the acting is really good from Stephen Geoffreys. And Tiffany Shepis gave a great performance. I've never seen her give a great performance before and so that was really memorable and important to me as I've always loved her as an actor. The rest of the actors do a good job as well.
This one is memorable and stands out from most other B-horror movies which have come out in the past few years. It's better than most other B-horror movies of late because of it's fresh feel and imaginative and creative edge. Most B-horror movies being made nowadays seem to be all the same because they don't have any plot elements which is original or unique and they don't know how to make scenes impact viewers, they just use the same slasher movie formula or some other supernatural horror movie formula we've already seen and seen done better. This film stands out with it's ingenuity in the face of a low budget to get ideas, images, and story content out in creative, and unique ways.
It's a stark, blunt, dark, sometimes disturbing, and raw horror film so if you can't take hard hitting, realistic and detailed violence then don't watch it. If you can then definitely watch it, you'll enjoy it.
Do not disturb this one from sitting in Redbox kiosks going unrented2/10
0/10 In this edited-down version of "New Terminal Hotel", screenwriter Don Malek (Stephen Geoffreys, Fright Night, 976-Evil, and quiet possibly one of the worst horror film I've ever seen Mr. Hush), still smarting from his girlfriend being murdered, decides to get vengeance while holed up in a seedy motel room andkeeping a powerful movie producer drugged up in the bathtub. Tiffany Shepis is (former Tromette) Ava, his heavily put-upon agent who becomes an unwitting accessory in the macabre little game he's playing. Oh and Corey Haim has a small cameo for no reason whatsoever.6 months ago
It's a slowly paced film and I'd only label it horror loosely. However, seeing this after Don's film, Mr.Hush, it can't help but appear to be a better film, if only by default. Worth what I paid to watch it (for the sake of transparency, I get four free rentals from Redbox Instant per month, this is the first one I picked for August) but if you've paid more than me, you'll likely to be horribly disappointed. The film is disjointed, awkward, slow and not particularly engaging.

0/10 There should be an extra tax for abysmal theatrical productions. This was a wretched waste of time. My senses want to be compensated for the time spent on this.6 months ago
Since there is a requirement for how long a review should be I decided to think if there was any good walk aways from this flic. I guess the fact that it started off a bit confusing but with enough plot development that it kept my attention long enough to watch more was a promising thing. But soon after I realized that I was only sticking around for disappointment. Others may find this as something interesting or entertaining enough with which to pass the time. Unfortunately, I am not one of them.
Kinda sick and twisted fun8/10
0/10 I just have to get this on DVD; what a hoot! Of course, I know nothing about reviewing movies, but I had a good bit of fun watching this one, so I thought I'd share a couple of thoughts.6 months ago
The music made me think of drive-in B-movies, as did some of the dialog in certain places where the voices seemed to be bouncing back and forth in a tunnel. Other than that I liked the story and the characters, quirks and all, even though some of the acting seemed a little off at times.
And then there's a grown-up and often serious "Hoag", really doing a good job playing a psychopath perfectly, right down to being unsuspectable (is that a word?).
The ending made me bust out laughing with sheer joy. Need I say more? How about this: take a chance on this one if you liked the 'fun' tone of "Good Fellas", even though the two flicks have nothing else in common. This is a wonderful revenge movie with an odd touch, and I just have to have it!
