A late night detour leads to an unimaginable nightmare when an estranged couple’s car breaks down on a remote country road. Finding themselves stranded on a dark and deserted two-lane highway, David Fox (Luke Wilson) and his soon-to-be ex-wife Amy (Kate Beckinsale) are forced to spend the night at a seedy motel run by an odd but seemingly harmless proprietor (Frank Whaley). In their filthy, threadbare room, the bickering couple finds a cache of homemade slasher films that look disturbingly real. Once they realize the blood-soaked videos were shot in the very room in which they’re staying, David and Amy know they will be the sadistic filmmakers’ next victims unless they put aside their differences and work together to escape.
A deft blend of blood-curdling horror film and taut psychological thriller, VACANCY transcends both genres with its compelling storyline of loss, love and redemption.
