There’s Plenty of Vacancy for a Prequel

Our favorite wall-jumper!During a quick visit over to the place where film conversations go to die (IMDB), I saw that last year’s motel horror pic “>Vacancy (review) is receiving a second serving.

STYD is reporting this entry as a prequel where we find a trio of friends caught at a motel where snuff films are being made. It also looks like the casting has almost been finalized with Blood and Chocolate wall-jumping beauty Agnes Bruckner as one of the leads. Brian Klugman, Arjay Smith, Christopher Allen Nelson and Joe Reegan have also been brought on.

Nimród Antal will not be returning this time to direct; instead that responsibility is up to Eric Bross, whose resume consists of a lot of TV directing. Mark Smith has been tapped again to be the project’s screenwriter, so we can probably expect more of the same of what we saw last year.

    Gotcha.

    Still, there are plenty of more exciting things that you can fill that ninety minutes with than watching VACANCY. Ugh.

    I know, I was partly kidding with the chap.

  • Messiahman

    Rorshach didn’t spoil anything about VACANCY. He just gave the basic setup for the film as seen in any of the trailers — that there are bad guys doing bad things in VACANCY, — which completely negates any tension in the prequel.

    I just want to thank Rorschach for saving me ninety minutes on “Vacancy.” Thanks to your spoiler heavy comment I won’t have to see it…

    Wait…

    I’ll see it anyway.

    Me thinks this may go straight to video.

  • Messiahman

    The first film was uninspired and filled with cliches. It was about as cookie-cutter as these things get.

    Who honestly cares about a friggin’ prequel?

  • G.D.

    It doesn’t say that it’s the same motel.

  • Rorschach

    I really hate this type of shit. I mean, ok, so who’s gonna be the girl Luke Wilson saw on the tape? And forget about suspense, since we know that the bad guys get away with it, because they’re still in business in the original.

    BLEH.

    Oh Agnes. So hot, so much potential, and zippo.
