The Makers Trust Your Intelligence (by piccolo300000)
They don't make you feel stupid, they give you something that seems real. There isn't any sugar coating, no senseless nudity, just a claustrophobic atmosphere and tense build up that will have you on the edge of your seat, anxious to see what will happen next. It's the way a movie should be done, and makes for a satisfying late fright night.A thrilling horror shocker that follows a quarreling married couple, David and Amy Fox Luke Wilson and Kate Beckinsale that end up breaking down in the middle of nowhere and have to walk a few miles to a gas station/motel. The strange and <more>
creepy manager gives them the "honeymoon suite." The room is, of course, the worst motel room you will ever see, cockroaches, no TV channels come in, etc. With nothing to do, David begins watching the videotapes snuff films in the room. They both begin to discover that the films are real and were filmed in their room. They find themselves in a life or death situation and try everything possible to survive the night. If you liked the trailer and the synopsis or any of the actors, you will definitely find that you like this movie. When I first saw a trailer for the movie, I thought it looked good, but was a little hesitant because of the way that horror movies are made today gore and bore . This film has a very good plot and is solid in structure. Even though you do not get the full back story of the characters, you get their painful story through the excellent writing. In the beginning, you don't quite get why they fight or seem to "hate" each other, but it doesn't take long to understand maybe 15 minutes counting the beginning montage of credits . I was literally on the edge of my seat throughout almost the entire film, and found not one dull moment. Suspense and tension are the real deal in this movie, and it is done incredibly well. Lots of excellent camera angles and authentic startling sequences add to the tense nature of the film. The characters seem very genuine and real, the relationship between the main two characters is portrayed extremely well. Wilson and Beckinsale come off as a real couple with a history. Their acting is extremely believable, and the writing of the characters is done extremely well. Another great thing is that they aren't your typical brainless genre characters who get naked and drop to the floor when the killer approaches, they are much more real. They do everything that you expect that you would do if you were in their situation. They make good decisions, which make them much more realistic, winning sympathy rather easily. There are heart-pumping fight sequences, which were well executed and will make you cross your fingers for Beckinsale and Wilson. There are also tender moments that will add to your root for them. By the end you will want them to stick it to that manager for everything he's done and for a reconciliation between the two main characters. I enjoyed it ten fold, but you'll have to watch it to see whether they make it in the end. Overall, Vacancy is an original psychological thriller that is heavy on suspense, while not so heavy on bloodshed.The movie does contain a far amount of vulgar language. I would recommend this movie. Your missing out if you don't see it.
This movie was great!! And SCARY!!! My husband and I were jumping out of our seats through the whole thing! You have to go see it you really won't regret it. I am definitely going to buy it when it comes out on DVD which hopefully won't be too long! Saw a preview for 1408 as well, can't wait till that comes out either! Vacancy was suspenseful the entire time, you never know whats going to happen. It was scary because it made you jump when you least expected it, and great acting as well, you really do start to like the "good" characters! It ends the way every scary movie <more>
should end!!! Highly recommend it, I really hope people go see it! On a scale of 10 it gets a 10 in my book.
Great scare true to its horror/suspense genre (by oceanictray69)
I liked this film very much. When it first started and it seemed to drag along, I thought that'd be it and that nothing else would become exciting. Also the creative use of credits in the main title was pretty silly, but the film was quite good. Kate Beckinsale was sure able to pull off a real bitch at the beginning of the film, but we then felt sympathy for her toward the end of the film, when she realizes she must work with Luke Wilson to survive, and she becomes more of a humble human-being. The suspense was surely well-used, as the killers would pop out and great sound effects would <more>
play along. The main villain was also well cast, since he really did seem freaky and weirdo-like. I would recommend this title to any teens going out to the movies in the weekend. "Vacancy" is a good scare.
The theater was packed more so than usual and why not as Vacancy was a very entertaining thrillride.Kate Beckinsale is great in her first Horror film and Luke Wilson is great in pretty much his first serious role as these two squabbling spouses can feed off of each others talent.Remember when we had nothing but slasher movies being intentionally funny, you know the days where Jason X, Wrong Turn, Scream, Freddy vs Jason, and I Know What You Did Last Summer well that is slowly coming to an end as Vacancy aligns itself with Saw, Texas Chainsaw Massacre, and The Hills Have Eyes as a great <more>
serious slasher that doesn't have ridiculous humour or one liners.Vacancy has a simple enough storyline that has indeed been done before but the best thing about it is that unlike so many other slasher movies this one has a lot of character development as these characters aren't the typical teenager or cop whose name you don't remember or care about you know damn well who the Fox couple is, why they're having problems, and you end up rooting for them to survive.To say Vacancy is scary is a bit of a stretch but to say Vacancy is a great thriller would be about accurate.The storyline progresses at a fast pace but none of it is half @$$ed or out of nowhere everything makes sense in the end.Vacanc's pacing gets you're adrenaline pumping in the same way that any good quality thriller does.Vacancy has has a much more realistic and believable story as you know full well these killers are everyday people they aren't a monstrous man with a flesh disease like in Texas Chainsaw or House Of Wax and it's not some campy undead serial killer like Freddy Krueger or Jason Vorhees.I think what added to the effect of the creepy atmosphere was having pretty much the whole film take place at night as it really gave you a cold feeling that something was lurking out their.Again my only complaints are that the dialogue is sometimes not well delivered, the plot is at times over the top, and it borrows a lot of elements from Psycho and Saw.The Good -Overall good acting -Doesn't rely solely on gore or jump scares -Good amount of character development -Excellent pace that keeps the adrenaline pumpingThe Bad -Some bad line delivery -Plot tends to get a little over the top -Various horror clichés eg. the car breaks down
Tense, Suspenseful, and Solid Shocker. (by drownnnsoda)
"Vacancy" is a suspenseful horror shocker that follows a young disputing couple on their way home from an anniversary party, Amy and David Fox Kate Beckinsale and Luke Wilson , who have just recently lost a child and are about to enter a divorce. The bickering couple end up stranded outside a small service station in the middle of nowhere, and decide to to check into the Pinewood motel, a cheap little place for them to spend the night until they can get help the next morning. The quirky desk clerk gives them their room, and they find it to be a complete dump. But their dingy motel <more>
room is the least of their problems, when they find videotapes of homemade snuff movies where previous guests were filmed as they were brutally murdered. With a team of masked killers surrounding the entire motel, and every area under surveillance, Amy and David find themselves in a life-or-death struggle as they try and survive through the night.If the plot summary for this movie sounds like something that interests you, you will more than likely enjoy this suspenseful horror flick. I went into "Vacancy" with pretty average expectations - I wasn't that wild about this movie when I'd first heard about it, but it sounded interesting enough so I decided to give it a try, and I'm glad I did. Unlike the vast majority of the horror junk that gets released lately, this film actually boasts an original and solidly-constructed premise. Take some elements from Hitchock's "Psycho" was it just me, or were those opening credits played over with the Bernard Herrman-like score a direct reference to Hitchcock? , throw in some aspects from the "Saw" series, and tie things together in a tense little package, and you get "Vacancy". I was literally on the edge of my seat throughout almost the entire film, and found not one dull moment. Suspense and tension are the real kickers in this movie, and it is done very well. Lots of moody camera angles and some genuinely frightening sequences take the underground cave scenes for example add to the tense nature.Our lead performers are Beckinsale and Wilson, both of whom turn in some great performances. Wilson plays the "husband hero" and Beckinsale is the "damsel in distress-gone fighting machine", and both capture this effectively. Their acting is believable, and I think that the writing has something to do with it as well, because their characters are written really well. They're not your typical genre morons who drop to the floor when the killer approaches, they are much more real. They make good decisions and the right moves, which makes them much more credible and realistic, winning over the audiences sympathy rather easily. There were some heart-pumping fight sequences as well between the heroes and the villains, which were well executed and had you rooting for Beckinsale and Wilson. The ending was a little uneven I have to admit, but compared to the tense hour and twenty-five minutes before it, it doesn't come close to bringing the movie down.Overall, "Vacancy" is an original horror flick that is heavy on suspense, while not so heavy on bloodshed. The claustrophobic atmosphere and the tense build up in this movie is it's real charm, and it will have you on the edge of your seat, anxious to see what will happen next. It's the way a thriller should be done, and makes for an enjoyable late-night fright fest. Exceeded my expectations and went beyond. 9/10.
There Was No Vacancy In The Theater! (by rom_sade)
Yes, the theater was full of people that loved it! I had the luck to watch this at the theaters. in a really early screening, here in Israel.Where "Disturbia" microwaved elements of "Rear Window," the terse, relentless "Vacancy" borrows more sparingly from "Psycho," which also was set in a seedy West Coast motel where guests have a tendency to never check out."Vacancy" sneaks into your brain from the get-go by skillfully exploiting several elements: the urban myth about the couple that watches some porn in a fleabag motel and suddenly realizes <more>
they are the porn stars, the paranoia of characters who think they're being watched and they're right, since we are watching them and our awareness of previous movies with similar mayhem.Specifically, I'm talking about "Psycho," which "Vacancy" nods to in ways both small the stuffed birds that appear everywhere, the use of mirrors, the look- and sound-alike opening credits and large the stalking of motel-bound characters, which relies less on gore than on mounting, claustrophobic suspense .Casting Luke Wilson and Kate Beckinsale in the lead roles is the first sign that "Vacancy" is smarter than the average horror movie. They're terrific as a bickering couple who get stranded in a dump where the night manager Frank Whaley might as well greet them with, "Good evening. I hope your room will prove satisfactory until I get around to snuffing you out and videotaping it." We know just enough about the couple to root for them as they're stalked by masked maniacs, but what drives "Vacancy" is its ingenious premise, from which director Nimrod Antal - who made the fine Hungarian thriller "Kontroll" "Control" - wrings every ounce of tension. "Control" is a good word for him. Antal has done a clever job of imagining the story in visual terms, right down to the way he frames the unlucky road trippers. Early on, as they snipe at each other, they're always separated by something a wall, a mirror , even when they're together. But adversity forces them to cooperate, and, in the final scenes, the camera offers us some hope: At last, these Bickersons are depicted together in the frame, fighting for their lives.
VACANCY -- This is a solid movie, it has good solid acting, wonderful direction and excellent Alfred Hitchcock style cinematography and lighting. The plot keeps you guessing and on the edge of your seat throughout the entire movie.I have to tell you that I didn't have high expectations going in to see this movie, I did not think that Luke Wilson would be able to pull it off but he did a very fine job. Kate Beckinsale was superb as always and the motel manager was awesome as was the entire cast - the service station owner and the policeman.If you want to see this movie DO NOT READ ALL OF <more>
THE REVIEWS on IMDb.com as some of them give away the entire plot, just go see the movie.
A couple checked in to a motel, will they check out ? (by richshire)
Vacancy is a shot of thriller mix with a shot of horror served straight up,no ice, in room temperature. A great great movie for this type of genre OBVIOUSLY not for everyone, but if you are a fan and feel a little down about many other so called horror, thriller movies that are simply S*@T, movies that are relying on fancy special effects or remakes of other films from the past or different country LATELY, well, this would be the one movie you won't feel crappy paying full price for. Luke Wilson and Kate Beckensale perfect cast play a couple who check into a motel after a long <more>
drive,the rest is an intense ride That will glue you eyes to the screen.I see the movie as a tribute to the 70's thriller/horror/action home invasion, psychotic killer type of films You can see this right from the opening credits. There are moments where Vacancy could go bad and disappointing I was actually waiting for it but it did not a bit on the ending being cliché, but I was OK to give it a pass .WELL DIRECTED, WELL CAST, AND WELL SHOT.
A well made, suspenseful thriller that builds nicely and avoids the blood and gore-fest. possible spoiler (by rpannier)
When I first started watching the film I was hoping this was the set-up couple for the real victims. The couple was endlessly whiny wife and annoying husband .The rationale for their annoying behavior didn't make me any more sympathetic towards the two of them. As the movie got going, it went through the predictable cliché-ish 'other characters.' Mechanic and Motel Manager. Once they were in the room, something amazing happened -- the characters started doing intelligent things. When there was the strange knockings on the door, the husband did what most normal people would do <more>
-- he tried to confront the unknown idiot and the next room and then went and got the manager. When he figured out that the movies were taken in his room, he analyzed them for any clues they might have. I was actually impressed that the characters in the film stayed smart and did reasonable things, rather than do the same idiotic things I see in most films. The last ten minutes are a bit of a downer IMO . I found the ending contrived and forced. But, at the same time I did find it nice they avoided one annoyingly old cliché of so many of these types of movies. I won't mention it, I'll let you figure it out. I also appreciated the fact that the movie avoided the need to throw blood everywhere, as if that makes the movie more suspenseful, intense and/or scary. I must say it kept me engrossed. I liked it a lot, in spite of its flaws.
