Don Malek (Stephen Geoffreys) isn't the usual tenant found in the skid row hotels of downtown L.A. Grief-stricken since the murder of his fiancee Katherin, the successful screenwriter-turned murderous vigilante is bent on revenge against studio head Stanley Glissberg, the man cleared of murder charges in Katherin's death. Don can't forget - and Glissberg's going to pay. Enter Don's tenacious literary agent, Ava Collins (Tiffany Shepis), who tracks him down and wants to sell his manuscript - if there is one - or cut him loose. He assures her he's holed-up in the cheap room to write, and his story's a work-in-progress. Adding to his slippery slope, Don calls in a favor from a neighbor, and in doing so, uncovers despicable abuses down the hall. Spitz (Ezra Buzzington) is a hard-drinking former Marine and paraplegic, with a penchant for hookers and a violent streak. When he demands a return of the favor, Don must choose between turning a blind eye, or quickening his own destructive spiral... Written by
New Terminal Hotel is a film about a writer who explores the dark side of murder while living in a seedy hotel. Various characters come into his life and he disposes of them one by one. Tiffany Shepis plays the Writers Agent, constantly snooping around looking for his latest, greatest script, Eventually she gets too close and gets implicated in his crimes. Some good performances by various cast members create an interesting film with a good brutal conclusion. Corey Haim plays once of the writers victims, his role in the film is really painful to watch cause of his really bad British accent and I was actually quite glad he dies so I didn't have to suffer through much of it. Stephen Geoffreys plays the writer/killer and is pretty solid. Watch Erza Buzzington, he really rips up the screen with his performance, and has some of the best lines in the whole film. Overall it was a good waste of 90 min.
