They say that the first cut is the deepest. Well, in this case it is also the best. And by best I mean better than this slop. It is hardly even related to the original with a different motel and characters. The whole mess ends up being silly and nothing you are even going to want to remember.
The previous spring the authorities shut down the Meadow View Inn. At the motel they found videotapes of over 200 murders that had been committed on the premises. The earliest murders were committed in the fall of 2004 and this is the story of the very first victims.
Caleb (Trevor Wright – Air Buddies),his new fiancé, Jessica (Agnes Bruckner – The Woods, Blood and Chocolate) along with his buddy Tanner (Arjay Smith – Be Kind Rewind, First Sunday) are on a road trip and they stop at an out-of-the-way motel to spend the night. They expect a rundown place with bad furniture, but what they get is something much more sinister.
Mr. Smith (Scott G. Anderson – Vacancy, Titanic) and his sadistic accomplices have something planned for their guests and are going to make some cash off selling recordings of it. It becomes a deadly game of cat and mouse with the three young people in a fight for their lives.
Setting itself up as a prequel to "Vacancy", the film shows no potential. It doesn't start well or end well. The writing is crazy bad and the couple is so annoying that you don't really want them to survive. There is nothing new or fresh about this and it is gory and sadistic. Really has no redeeming qualities.
