In just a few hours, at an unusual love motel on the outskirts of Bangkok called Motel Mistress, four (human) lives intertwine and change forever. Sopol, a typical Thai father-like figure with kinky and dangerous sexual fetishes, brings his new young prey, a school girl named Laila, to room number 7, his custom-made erotic chamber. Tul, a former child actor who has been reported missing by his mother and causing the media to speculate wildly over his alleged delusional belief that aliens are coming to take him away, shows up at the motel, determined to check into room number 5 and paint it all black. Tot, a motel staffer, dreams of a cooler job, and perhaps the handsome reward money offered by Tul's mother for information on her son's whereabouts could be useful. Sexy Vicky arrives just in time to help her friend Laila from falling under Sopol's violent domination. These four lives eventually connect in a way that none of them could have anticipated. All are "taken away." Because ...Written by
Well, I didn't really know what I was in for with "Motel Mist", aside from knowing that it was a Thai movie. And since I enjoy Asian cinema, of course I opted to sit down and watch this 2016 movie from writer and director Prabda Yoon.
I managed to endure 55 minutes of this ordeal. And yeah, trust me, this was an ordeal. The movie is phenomenally slow paced to the point where you are swallowed up in absolute boredom. I endured 55 prolonged minutes of torture, as I hoped that the movie would pick up in pace and actually get interesting. That just never happened, and I gave up on this rubbish of a movie, never to return to finish it.
My rating of a single start out of ten comes solely from the fact that the production value of the movie counted for something. Everything else in the movie; script, storyline, characters, etc. is just rubbish.
There was no red line to the story and script, and it seemed like just random jibberish that writer and director Prabda Yoon put together as the movie progressed.
Stay well clear of "Motel Mist". Some of us suffered from parts of the movie, possibly some even the entire movie, so the rest of you don't have to. This movie was a massive swing and a miss. Horrible movie. Just horrible.
