A psycho- sexual thriller following a couple that buys an old motel in the desert looking for a new beginning, but what seemed at first as an escape is soon a thrilling ride through a mysterious world when Ray discovers a two way mirror and witnesses a horrifying murder. In a twisted game of cat and mouse, Ray must race to save his wife and himself from a gruesome secret connected to the motel and the strange people who visit there.Written by
As a Nicolas Cage fan I was expecting good things with this film. The write up sounded right up my street. Sadly I was to be bitterly disappointed. The actors were not engaging, convincing or believable, and they all had a permanent look of confusion on their faces throughout the film - they were not the only ones! While the plot was imaginative, it lacked the intrigue and suspense and offered very little answer to many burning questions. On the whole it seems that this was not a well thought out film and had more holes in it than an old fisherman's net. The last few films of Cage's have been poor in comparison to his earlier work such as Face-Off, Con Air or Gone in 60 Seconds to name a few. This is as poor as his previous film Left Behind. I think personally they should have left this one behind too - on the cutting room floor!
