Trivia

Near the beginning of the film, when Jimmy pulls up outside of Maria's house, it is clearly apparent that the right front tire of the BMW is nearly flat. But there is no reference to the problem, or what may have caused it. See more »

A DECENT LITTLE SURVIVAL HORROR WITH A SOLID PERFORMANCE FROM LOUIS MANDYLOR
17 October 2020 | by lukem-52760See all my reviews

I checked out this little unknown DTV flick because I've recently become a fan of the excellent LOUIS MANDYLOR, A great underrated actor who has been around for ages & is in his early 50's now & always delivers a standout performance in everything that I've seen him in so far!!! MANDYLOR is excellent in the Action-Comedy films, The Debt Collector 1&2 with the equally fantastic SCOTT ADKINS, These two teamed up are a joy to watch, & he was excellent in the action packed Cop Thriller THE BRAVE, new on Netflix & I've only just discovered this dude!!! What Mandylor brings to his characters, that are usually troubled & angry tough guys, is a realism & a sense of real rage & emotion something that is special to see among the low-budget variety of films & actors that there is so many of but MANDYLOR stands out because of his raw & intense performances, he seems to give it his all no matter the budget or quality of the overall film & he deserves respect for that as an actor. Here Mandylor plays a newly released Con named, a bad boy named Nicky, who has just gotten out of a tough Romanian prison, & is greeted by his long time best friend named Jimmy (a great Peter Dobson) who is a wise guy type of old school gangster & they both set off to collect a bag of money that's owed them & then onto track down his estranged junkie/theif daughter & her druggie boyfriend, they find them at a motel on the way back their car gets hit & ran off the road down through some woods & into an isolated area with just a huge old abandoned hotel around for miles. I liked this setup that reminded abit of From Dusk Till Dawn in a way & when this now injured foursome take shelter in the decrepit hotel they realise that they are not alone & are now in a place of hell that has a gang of mutant cannibals as their only residents. There's nothing special about this cheap flick & at times it feels abit slow but it's an easy watch & does have two very good characters (Nicky & Jimmy)

The setup is very cool & the mood is creepy & i loved the characters of Nicky & Jimmy as their relationship is so believable & their banter is perfect too & Nicky's daughter is pretty good too but her lowlife boyfriend is useless & the Cannibals look pretty good, well they're just top less thugs covered in blood & don't talk but they are fine for a group of evil killers hunting our Characters. There's some decent action scenes & some bloody bits but nothing to over the top & is quite restrained really & isn't the blood bath you think it's going to be but what it's a cool little survive the night Horror that feels very 90's in it's small scale & tone & i really liked the huge old abandoned hotel as a creepy setting as our gang wonder through not knowing where their going or how many of those Cannibals are there.

Hotel of the Damned is a cool little late-night Horror film with characters you actually really like & want to survive the night.
