The plan was to spend one night in the abandoned Royal Crescent Hotel, where in 1985, five students were murdered, their killer never found. What was supposed to be just a night of fun, hunting for the victims' bloodstained rooms, suddenly changes when they find a severed hand and awake an evil presence within the hotel. Now they are running for their lives, trying to solve a mystery one hundred years old-and morning is still very far away. Written by
The director, Cartney Wearn, went to great pains to convince the actors in pre-production that the severed hands their characters would discover inside the abandoned Royal Crescent Hotel would be real cadaver hands. He made them follow strict protocol when handling the "real" corpse hands on set, and even had the props department take great pains to maintain the illusion. And they did not in fact see the hands until they shot their first take. So the reactions you see in the film are real, even if the hands aren't. See more »
[sits down by Connor who is on the sofa; slaps his leg]
Havin' fun little brother?
Why, yes I am.
[Pushes in between them with two beers]
Yes, we are.
[hands one to Connor who takes it; all three laugh]
Who the hell let you guys in here?
Are you kidding me? We are so getting some action tonight!
[pulls the sun visor off of his head]
Not with this you're not.

I personally thought that I would be in for a pleasant surprise but low and behold I was mistaken. I don't have any preconceptions about B movies I like to watch all kinds of quality work. This movie however, was not fun to watch. The plot is OK, it isn't written especially well but it's not that hard to listen to. The acting on the other hand was dreadful. I mean painful to watch. It wasn't the horror that had me cringing in my seat, it was the acting. I was looking for a hopeful for a glimpse of an up and coming actor in this movie, surely you won't find any one of the actors in upcoming A movies. They might be seen in one of those late night infomercials instead.
For this one I say Thanks but No Thanks.
