In contemporary Houston, Julia Barker and her husband live paycheck to paycheck; she delivers meals on wheels and works Bingo nights. She's stressed. She's gotten over-weight and doesn't recognize the puffy and tired face she sees in the mirror. She's having migraines and blackouts, and she's seeing visions - of a desolate room. Suddenly she leaves for New York City, checks into a cheap hotel, and goes in search of the room. She follows any sign she can find: a sudden encounter with an old friend, a meditation group, a Tarot reading, and an invitation to a party. Is she getting closer? But to what? Written by <>

HELP! Let me out of the Room!
18 January 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Do not be fooled by the appealing look of the DVD box. Beware of what is inside. Before you know it, you will have lost pieces of your soul to the producers and directors of this movie. R is for ridiculous. O is for "Oh god! What a waste of time." O is for zerO motivation. M is for movies that suck! We crown this one queen. Waste your time. Try to figure out this plot, and you might suffer a brain aneurysm. The best part of this movie was reading the comments on this site and knowing we are not alone in our absolute DISGUST for this brainless, plot less, mind sucking movie. There are not enough words in the English vocabulary to express the distaste I feel for this film.
