TERROR TRAP (violence trap) (2010 U.S.) D/W/P: DAN GARCIA
A bickering married couple (David James Elliott is the ex-Navy husband) get run off the road in the middle of nowhere, and rude, grizzly, bearded Sheriff Jeff Fahey (who`s quite amusing) directs them to a filthy hick motel for the night. They become the prey for masked killers putting on a show for paying viewers (who have popcorn!). In other rooms trafficked women are tied-up and tortured. Michael Madsen seems to be in control of it all. The horror and thrills are not that well orchestrated to be honest, but the characters and acting are better than usual, and i found this not-bad-at-all blatant VACANCY rip-off engaging enough. With Andrew Sensenig (who`s also good, and reminds me of Greg Kinnear) and an uneccesary coda (with out-of-place explosion). Shot in Louisiana.
