While driving at night on a lonely road, the car of estranged couple Don and Nancy is hit twice by another car in the middle of nowhere. Nancy asks for help and unpleasant sheriff Cleveland offers to take them to the nearby Motel Royal Vista and wait until the morning, when their car would be towed. When the couple arrives in the low-budget motel, they are attended by a weird receptionist. They are disturbed by noises and screams from inside the next room and Don asks them to keep quiet since his wife and he are tired and need to rest. But soon they realize that they are part of a sick and deadly game, and their lives are threatened.Written by

Stopping off at a motel in a small town to rest for the night, a man and his wife find the area a front for a group of criminals to make videos of them torturing people to demented passersby and force them to fight the group off to get away alive.
Overall this was a rather tedious, tired retread without a lot of interesting moments about it. One of the biggest issues with this one is the rather bland and tiresome story here that is quite unimpressive with how it gives out its plot points. The revelation about the secret organization is not only given quite early from the set-ups showing the cameras hidden around the room or listening into their conversations but also seems obvious based on their insistence upon staying, the general sleazy atmosphere and the completely desolation location that continues on throughout here. These here really hurt the first half by dragging this out through a series of scenes designed to build up suspense yet never does anything for that factor in a tired example of the style. There's also a big problem here in the boredom it takes before the first attack by showing them doing nothing of interest around the hotel or fighting with each other which makes this extremely taxing to get through because of the problems with the couple and the lack of the group in action in the beginning. These here are enough to hold off against the few minor areas of enjoyment here, starting with the action throughout the final half as the masked men make for some enjoyable times here tending to the various escape tactics present with the race for the booby-trapped car, the break-in attempt on the motel room and finally the big brawls here throughout that are quite fun and tend to really get some excitement going. That frantic action here not only gives the section some nice gore but also a pretty thrilling way to work the creepy looks of the masks the gangs' wearing during these interactions that add a darker overall tone to these proceedings. Still, all of these aren't enough to overcome the main flaws with this one which is overall quite problematic and flawed.
Rated R: Graphic Violence, Graphic Language and Nudity.
