Stockton, California's elevation is 13 feet above sea level. Not only is snow almost impossible, there are no significant elevations within 40 miles of the city. The snow and the hills surrounding the city are incongruities. See more »
Hotel with some dark past, 7 strangers with different stories, different goals. Sounds like promising project.
But, I am not satisfied. Everything interesting happened in first 20 minutes of movie where you discover all that matters. After that, when you think plot will make some great turn, when you are expecting something unexpectable, nothing happen. I was especially dissapointed with the end.
Movie is not that bad, I gave it a solid mark, but since I had very big expectations I am a little bit dissapointed with that what I saw. I think that this kind of movie has much better potential that this movie didn't produce or just too less.
