After kidnapping and brutally assaulting two young women, a gang unknowingly finds refuge at a vacation home belonging to the parents of one of the victims: a mother and father who devise an increasingly gruesome series of revenge tactics.
Desperate to repay his debt to his ex-wife, an ex-con plots a heist at his new employer's country home, unaware that a second criminal has also targeted the property, and rigged it with a series of deadly traps.
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!Written by
The cast and crew remarked that the film was intended as an homage to old school horror films, primarily Sir Alfred Hitchcock's Psycho (1960). As a result of this, the emphasis is placed primarily on suspense over gory violence. See more »
While David is watching the second tape, Amy is behind him, with her hair down and holding her head between her hands. But she actually puts her hair down in one of the next shots. See more »
[after swerving while driving]
Son of a bitch!
What are you doing?
It was a goddamn raccoon in the middle of the road!
Well, better to kill us than get a little roadkill on the car, huh?
Well, we're still alive. I can tell by the pissy look that you're giving me.

Tension, suspense, and unsettling scenes when a couple is stranded at a solitary Motel
This exciting movie deals about David (Luke Wilson) and Amy Fox( Kate Beckinsale), a young marriage with problems . The couple is traveling when their car breaks down but then they are helped by a mechanic (Etham Embry). Later on, the car again fails and David along with his wife Amy come across a Hotel located in the middle of nowhere and attended by a rare receptionist (Frank Whalley). At the room they are surveyed by hidden cameras and trapped by locked doors and thundering noises. After that, they're besieged by psycho-killer attackers and then look for some means to getaway through underground tunnels.
This spooky picture contains action,terror,shocks, suspense, grisly killings and numerous creepy scenes. The film packs terrifying and hair-raising frames and a little bit of blood and gore . The grade Z slasher films which the Hotel broadcasts for its guests's entertainment are filmed in similar naturalist and realist style to ¨ Henry, portrait of a killer¨ directed by James McNaughton . While the look is suitable eerie and frightening, the argument spreads to the breaking point and the ending turns out to be a little frustrating and commercial. Suspenseful and thrilling musical score by Paul Haslinger. Dark and shaded cinematography by Andrzej Sekula who is expert on strange atmosphere as he proved in ¨Cube 2¨ and ¨ American psycho¨. The motion picture is professionally directed by Nemród Antal. He was born in Los Angels though is of Hungarian origin. In 2oo5 he moved back to his ancestry place , Hungary, where he directed ¨Control¨ gaining several prizes and quite a big impact . He returned United States where filmed ¨Vacancy¨ which achieved undoubted success and huge reputation. After that, he realized another feature film full of action titled ¨Armored¨, now at cinemas, with Matt Damon, Jean Reno and Laurence Fishburne.
