David and Amy Fox find themselves stranded in the middle of nowhere when their car breaks down. Luckily, they come across a motel with a TV to entertain them during their overnight stay. However, there's something very strange and familiar about the Grade-Z slasher movies that the motel broadcasts for its guests' enjoyment. They all appear to be filmed in the very same room they occupy! Realizing that they are trapped in their room with hidden cameras now aimed at them filming their every move, David and Amy desperately find a means of escape through locked doors, crawlspaces and underground tunnels before they too become the newest stars of the mystery filmmaker's next cult classic!

Did You Know?


The Pinewood Motel was actually built specifically for the film and was not a pre-existing location. Moreover, the Pinewood Motel was actually two entirely separate sets, one interior and one exterior. Director Nimród Antal remarked that the attention to detail by the production designers was astonishing, since they were able to take an entirely new structure and make it look like a run-down dive motel. He remarked that, after shooting each day, he felt that he needed to "shower off" the feel of the set despite it actually being quite clean in real life. See more »


In one of the snuff films it is shown that the killers were banging a girl's head against the lights hanging directly above the bed. But in the room in which Amy and David are staying the lights are hanging by the side of the bed. It's possible that this was filmed in one of the other rooms, however. See more »

David Fox: [after swerving while driving] Son of a bitch!
Amy Fox: What are you doing?
David Fox: It was a goddamn raccoon in the middle of the road!
Amy Fox: Well, better to kill us than get a little roadkill on the car, huh?
David Fox: Well, we're still alive. I can tell by the pissy look that you're giving me.

EXCELLENT Scarry Movie
23 April 2007 | by See all my reviews

VACANCY -- This is a solid movie, it has good solid acting, wonderful direction and excellent Alfred Hitchcock style cinematography and lighting. The plot keeps you guessing and on the edge of your seat throughout the entire movie.

I have to tell you that I didn't have high expectations going in to see this movie, I did not think that Luke Wilson would be able to pull it off but he did a very fine job. Kate Beckinsale was superb as always and the motel manager was awesome as was the entire cast - the service station owner and the policeman.

If you want to see this movie DO NOT READ ALL OF THE REVIEWS on IMDb.com as some of them give away the entire plot, just go see the movie.
