Exciting Thriller
22 October 2004 | by (Waalwijk, Netherlands) – See all my reviews

This movie is a great and exciting thriller! I watched it several times already and still get not bored of it. Everything is right in this one: the small but impressive cast, the remote location of the old wrecked motel. The story tells of 2 brothers (Craig Sheffer and Bradley Gregg), who run a motel. However, their guests never check out… When the couple Dennis Hopper and Lara Flynn Boyle stay at the motel, things start to become quite messy. The story is very thrilling and the performances of the actors are top. Craig Sheffer does a great job, as usual, but especially Bradley Gregg as the blind Steven is brilliant. If you like thrillers, then you absolutely must see this one! You will not be disappointed.
