When I saw this movie in theaters, I wasn’t sure what to expect. I saw the trailer only once and knew it was some type of horror movie with John Cusack, now as most people know, most of his movies are great so I went into this movie with a good felling. Turns out it was absolutely amazing so I picked up the DVD. Here’s a quick plot summary on the movie since there wasn’t a movie review done on this one:

Ten strangers: A limo driver (Cusack), an actress (Rebecca De Mornay), a prostitute (Amanda Peet), a cop (Ray Liotta) who is transporting a convict (Jake Busey), a just married couple (Clea DuVall and William Lee Scott), a motel manager (John Hawkes), and a family in need of help after a horrible accident (John C. McGinley, Leila Kenzle, Bret Loehr) are stranded at a motel in the middle of nowhere (managed by Hawkes) where they discover each one of them is being mysteriously killed off one by one. I can’t give away too much because it’s one of those movies that you just have watch and pay attention in order to get the plot. If I say anymore it would be giving the whole movie away.

This movie was so well done, the acting, the directing, everything was set up perfectly. So perfectly that when I saw this in theaters I walked out at the end just shaking my head saying “unfreakinbelieveable”. The DVD has some nice extras for fans of this movie. The commentary by director James Mangold is interesting, the deleted scenes are great and there’s even an alternate ending. This movie is categorized as horror and it is that indeed. It’s extremely creepy and one of my favorite new movies. Check it out.
