Vacancy (2007) Review:

This first horror film by Nimrod Antal (before Predators) is quite a good surprise. It is nothing special in itself, but it delivers its fair lot of entertainment.

The best thing about it is probably the great work done on the main characters, a couple who lost their son and are soon to be divorced. Kate Beckinsale does here a master job at playing the mean, Prozac-addicted, bitch (I wonder if she isn’t a bit like that in real life…). The film takes the time necessary to explain their relationship, giving an interesting depth to the story. The opposite goes for the bad guys, however, who appears as the usual sick country folks but are too simply introduced and not developed enough.

As for the action, it is pretty basic, but not bad. The film is in the classic style of home invasion/survival horror, except that it happens in a motel. The hide and seek game is entertaining, and the tension is there too.


Overall, this survival horror film appeared decent, until it was ruined by a really lame happy ending.
