Last night there was still plenty of Liebfraumilch Rheinhessen left to drink. We summoned the herd and popped a dvd on.
The chosen movie for the night was Vacancy starring Kate Beckinsale, Luke Wilson and Frank Whaley. The film starts of with a couple in a car, breaking down in the middle of nowhere and needing a room for the night. When they finally get somewhere to get some shut-eye, sinister goings on begin to say the least…..
Well I don’t usually go for this type of movie myself, but it really was quite good. I felt strong feelings of suspense and uneasiness from the outset of the film. The plot wasn’t too much different from the Hostel series, but included a far more sinister atmosphere. The movie doesn’t build up to plain old gore-fest like Hostel either. Instead the film dwells on what might happen or what could happen. Saying all that, I still prefer Hostel. All in all a good movie, but don’t watch it if you’re planning a long drive. 6/10
