Storyline

In 2004, the managers of the Meadow View Motel Gordon and Reece use room 6 to videotape the intimacy of the guests to sell porn movies. When the mysterious Mr. Smith checks in with a young woman, they witness the sadistic psychopath guest stabbing and killing his mate. The footage is a success and they decide to make other snuff movies with Smith. When Caleb, who is traveling from Chicago with his fiancée Jessica and his best friend Tanner, decides to rest in Meadow View, they have a nightmarish night and try to survive from the sick intention of the gang.

Trivia

When driving up to the motel there is a sign that has a branch obscuring the sign and making it read "cheap Bates" - a nod to the original slasher motel, the Bates Motel from Psycho (1960). See more »

Goofs

When the first couple are having sex, they mess with the lights so that they can change the camera angle for a better view. But later, when they're watching the tape with their distributor the angle of the camera is wrong. They're watching a part that happened before they switched to an overhead view, but the angle is overhead anyway. See more »

Quotes

Otis: [Doris has let two strangers in need of help - Tanner and Jessica - into the house] Doris, what the hell are you doing?
Doris: Jesus would let these two in here.
Otis: Yeah, but he knows if they slit his throat he'll be back in three days!
Doris: Otis, that is blasphemy,
Otis: And this here is crazy.

Better than expected
25 January 2009 | by (Oklahoma, US) – See all my reviews

I was really surprised by this one. As far as direct to DVD films go, this one's much better than average. It has pretty good acting and production values. I'd say it's comparable in quality to Joy Ride 2, if you've had a chance to catch that one.

Since it's a prequel, the conclusion is mostly foregone, but the writers did offer up a few nice twists that keeps this from being a waste of time.

Not a lot of gore. It (thankfully) skips most of the torture porn conventions, and mostly offers up a nice companion piece to the first movie. If you liked the original Vacancy, give this one a chance.
