Terror Trap: Directed by Dan Garcia. With David James Elliott, Heather Marie Marsden, Michael Madsen, Jeff Fahey. 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.

“They shouldu0026#39;ve sold this script as Vacancy 3. A couple who are having marital problems are involved in a crash on a deserted highway in the middle of nowhere. The other driver takes off. Cue the creepy Sheriff (Jeff Fahey) who recommends staying at a dodgy motel up the road until they can arrange a tow. Cue the creepy guy behind the counter who donu0026#39;t much like them city folk. Break out the guys in masks, the disturbance in the room next door, the loud banging, the awful realisation that theyu0026#39;re being watched and then introduce the sickou0026#39;s who are viewing this snuff for their own sick pleasure. The only differences between Terror Trap and Vacancy are the use of a sinister Sheriff as opposed to a smiley Gas Station Attendant and the fact that the snuff customers are watching a live feed of the mayhem as opposed to buying the videos.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eCue Michael Madsen as the dude in charge. Iu0026#39;m a huge Tarantino fan and I have oodles of respect for Michael Madsen, but someone seriously needs to tell that guy to stop playing Mr Blonde in every movie. Whether heu0026#39;s playing a good guy or bad guy, his persona is always the same. Although, he was quite different when he played the lovable cat burglar in Heart and Souls. Wait a minute… that was Tom Sizemore.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eI have a newfound appreciation for Luke Wilson and Kate Beckinsaleu0026#39;s performances in Vacancy. I couldnu0026#39;t bring myself to care even slightly about the main couple. The woman, Nancy, is the most unlikeable heroin Iu0026#39;ve seen for a long time. About 10 minutes into the movie I started preying for her to get brutally slashed to death, just to shut her up.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eThe only reason I made it to the end of this film is because it hadnu0026#39;t been reviewed on IMDb yet. Thatu0026#39;s how bored I was. My review is quite generous.
