THE MOVIE


Vacancy (2007) — When a couple’s (LUKE WILSON, KATE BECKINSALE) car breaks down in the middle of nowhere, they are forced to spend the night at the only motel around, with only the TV to entertain them – until they discover that the low-budget slasher videos they find in their room were all filmed in the very room in which they’re sitting.


Identity (2003) — Ten strangers with secrets are brought together in a savage rainstorm at a desolate motel. Relief in finding shelter is quickly replaced with fear as the ten travelers begin to die, one by one. They soon realize that, if they are to survive, they’ll have to uncover the secret that has brought them all together.


Hostel (2005) — Best friends Josh (DEREK RICHARDSON) and Paxton (JAY HERNANDEZ) decide to spend the summer after college graduation on an all-out backpacking trip across Europe. While stopping in Amsterdam to indulge their tastes for drugs and sex, they meet Oli (EYTHOR GUDJONSSON), a like-minded traveler from Iceland. When the three bachelors set off to investigate enticing rumors of a Slovakian hostel in a city populated by lusty women, they find themselves drawn unwittingly into a deadly game.


Hostel: Part II (2007) — Beth (LAUREN GERMAN), Lorna (HEATHER MATARAZZO) and Whitney (BIJOU PHILLIPS), three young American women traveling abroad in Rome, decide to take a weekend excursion. Lured from their intended destination by a beautiful acquaintance (VERA JORDANOVA), the women anticipate a stay at a luxurious spa. Instead, they become pawns in a grisly game designed to entertain wealthy deviants from around the world.


Terror at Red Wolf Inn (1972) — A college student returns to her dorm room after class and discovers she is the winner of an all-expense paid vacation in the Red Wolf Inn. Before she can share her good fortune with her parents, she and two other girls are whisked away to begin their vacation of a lifetime. When one of the guests suddenly disappears, the young woman doesn’t believe the explanation the old couple who run the inn gives her concerning the strange goings on at the Red Wolf.


It Happened at Nightmare Inn (1973) — Two spinster sisters run a small inn that caters towards young foreign female tourists. Unfortunately, there is a dark side to the sisters that rises up to punish the young women they deem immoral. Many a traveler comes to stay but never up leaving the inn. When the sister of one patron comes in search of her missing sibling, it threatens to expose the truth behind the inn and its owners.


The Devil’s Nightmare (1971) — A busload of tourists is forced to take refuge at a castle due to a blocked road and inclement weather. The Baron and staff of the castle welcome the visitors but do not reveal to them the curse over the household. It seems that Satan has control over the estate and demands the new visitors be sacrificed to him in the form of the Seven Deadly Sins.


Legacy of Blood (1978) — An aged millionaire passes on and leaves her four children his large fortune. According to his will, the four heirs must spend one week at his estate in order to split up the fortune. Once everyone has arrived at the estate and settled in, strange things begin to happen and the heirs begin to turn up dead. Who is killing them and can the remaining heirs find out before it’s too late?

 

SPECIAL FEATURES – 0/5


This release has two discs, four movies per disc. No Features were included. The four older movies are available digitally through Mill Creek’s site.

 

VIDEO – 2.5/5, AUDIO – 2.75/5


The first four movies in the set (Vacancy, Identity, Hostel 1 & 2) look alright but with four movies on one disc, there will be compression issues. However, the second disc containing the older films from the 1970s look, well, awful; these almost look like they were taken straight off of a VHS tape.

Vacancy and Hostel Part II both get Dolby Digital 5.1 tracks while Identity and Hostel got Dolby Digital 2.0 tracks. The other four older titles sound like Dolby Mono tracks. None of these sound particularly amazing but the “newer” movies come out the best.

OVERALL – 2.5/5


The No Tell Motel set is another budget release from Mill Creek and outside maybe Vacancy, are not very good movies, but if you enjoy these types of movies, including some laughably poor flicks from the 70s (which would make for fun MST3K style riffing), then it might be worth picking up in the sub $10 range.
