Plot
Now that the curtain is pulled from the mysteries of the motel, we go behind the scenes of the schemes exposed at the end of 2007’s Vacancy. This is a prequel in which we learn what happened to the first victims of the snuff video racket, 3 years prior to the original story. We spend a lot of time with the bad guys, this time around. We go back in time because there are no returning actors...
Kate Beckinsale and Luke Wilson’s performances are not matched. We have a cast of no names who are not as likable. Indeed, the new protagonists are simple, without pep and without much of a personality. Some of the most important expectations of those who watched Part 1 are not met. For instance, the construction of the underground tunnel that links all rooms together is never addressed.
This said, pet peeves aside, Vacancy 2 is a nice thriller that doesn’t reinvent the genre but keeps us stressed for most of its running time. It exploits the kind of elements that people fear about remote motels and about strangers in general. The camera is a bit hectic and so is the editing, but, as a sequel, this generally lives up to the original.
