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
When production wrapped in 2008, the owner of The George Washington Hotel in Pittsburgh decided to leave the main location in the film intact in case the crew needed to return for reshoots. Two years later when a small fire broke out at the hotel, emergency workers stumbled onto a blood-splattered room littered with alcohol bottles and a human scalp, and concluded that it was a grisly crime scene. An eight hour investigation followed before authorities were finally convinced that it was merely a movie set. See more »

Do not disturb this one from sitting in Redbox kiosks going unrented
In this edited-down version of "New Terminal Hotel", screenwriter Don Malek (Stephen Geoffreys, Fright Night, 976-Evil, and quiet possibly one of the worst horror film I've ever seen Mr. Hush), still smarting from his girlfriend being murdered, decides to get vengeance while holed up in a seedy motel room andkeeping a powerful movie producer drugged up in the bathtub. Tiffany Shepis is (former Tromette) Ava, his heavily put-upon agent who becomes an unwitting accessory in the macabre little game he's playing. Oh and Corey Haim has a small cameo for no reason whatsoever.
It's a slowly paced film and I'd only label it horror loosely. However, seeing this after Don's film, Mr.Hush, it can't help but appear to be a better film, if only by default. Worth what I paid to watch it (for the sake of transparency, I get four free rentals from Redbox Instant per month, this is the first one I picked for August) but if you've paid more than me, you'll likely to be horribly disappointed. The film is disjointed, awkward, slow and not particularly engaging.
