Storyline

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!

Goofs

When the electricity is turned off and on, the TV turns back on and the VCR begins playing again. In reality, they would both remain off until manually turned on again. Even if they could be programmed to start right up as soon as power is resupplied, the video would pick up right where it left off before. In the shots that show the TV as power goes off and back on, when the picture comes back it shows a different scene in the snuff tape, giving the impression that the VCR was running when nothing else was.

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 (Antarctica) – 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.
