While driving at night on a lonely road, the car of estranged couple Don and Nancy is hit twice by another car in the middle of nowhere. Nancy asks for help and unpleasant sheriff Cleveland offers to take them to the nearby Motel Royal Vista and wait until the morning, when their car would be towed. When the couple arrives in the low-budget motel, they are attended by a weird receptionist. They are disturbed by noises and screams from inside the next room and Don asks them to keep quiet since his wife and he are tired and need to rest. But soon they realize that they are part of a sick and deadly game, and their lives are threatened. Written by

Another try at the "Vacency" type movies. This is not anywhere near as good. Drawn out and boring. No excitement. I say C-
"Well, it'll be an interesting evening." After a hit and run accident Don (Elliot) and Nancy are left stranded in the middle of nowhere. After the local sheriff gives them a ride to a motel run by Carter (Madsen) they soon realize that this is not the safest place for them to be. This movie started off really good, you feel tense when the cop talks to the passengers and really pull for the strangers. Then after the 20 min mark the movie starts to fall apart and drag on, and on, and on. Think "Vacency" without the horror and excitement. There are a lot of aspects they introduce that seem to go nowhere, and the ones that do aren't exciting enough to follow. I do like Michael Madsen (who doesn't like "Reservoir Dogs") but his last few movies have been bad, like Val Kilmer bad, and I hope that he will once again start making real movies. Overall, this movie was much better when it was called "Vacency". I give it a C-.
Would I watch again? - Nope.
*Also Try - Vacency 1 & 2
