You have got to be kidding me!
12 December 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

When I saw the cover art for this poor excuse for a horror movie I was excited! I was expecting to have a "Rabid Grannies" or a "Flesh-Eating Mothers" type of good time that most horror fans love. Instead, I was bored to tears! The woman on the cover of this box is not even in the movie, instead the audience is forced to watch a drab, untalented, older actress try to play the role of an insane person but instead she comes across more like Grandma Moses on qualudes...not at all scary or even campy just dull and ineffective. The "motel" that this film takes place at more resembles a collection of cardboard boxes on the street...the only redeeming quality that this film has is an eerie soundtrack but that is not necessarily effective because the film goes nowhere fast! Avoid this stinker, watch the aforementioned flicks or better yet...the ultimate motel slasher flick..."Motel Hell".
