    It isn't the Bates Motel, but the Pinewood Motel has enough creepy visitors and creaky floors to make Vacancy worth checking into for 90 minutes. show more

    Vacancy, in the end, simply offers a particularly aggressive brand of couples counseling. show more

    Elizabeth Weitzman New York Daily News

    Short, sharp and to the point, Vacancy has a single goal, and that is to scare the hell out of you. show more

    Kirk Honeycutt The Hollywood Reporter

    While the sadism doesn't stoop -- rise? -- to the level of the "Saw" horror-thrillers, Vacancy does have a name cast. show more

    It's a sordid but expert shocker. show more

    Rene Rodriguez Miami Herald

    Succeeds where so many other recent horror pictures have failed: It consistently scares you silly. show more

    Lou Lumenick New York Post

    The acting is solid, especially Whaley, whose nasty variation on Norman Bates is his showiest role since he memorably played Kevin Bacon's assistant in "Swimming With Sharks." show more

    Ken Fox TV Guide

    Stylish and surprisingly effective thriller. show more

    James Berardinelli ReelViews

    For the most part, this movie hits the right notes and gives its audience a dose of white-knuckle tension. show more

    Ty Burr Boston Globe

    At its worst, Vacancy is merely the kind of taut B-chiller they don't make any more, other than to riff on them in "Grindhouse." show more

    this was by far one of the worst movies ive ever seen. very predicitble. terribly written. i honestly think that my little sister could have written and shot a better movie. I feel embarrased for anyone who worked on this movie. im cried myself to sleep that night.

    To whom it Concerns,I barely got threw 40 min of this movie and after that 40 min I wanted to ask time warner cable for my $3.99 back. Im glad I did not pay to see it at the theater. All I have to say to those retards that made this movie quit copying other thrillers n come up with something new. I've seen a lot of thrillers in my day and the only one that keeps my interest any more is the Saw movies. I hope they keep making more, even after the 5th one comes out. I will def go see Saw 4 on Oct. 26. I challenge Hollywood 2 come up with more originals. I'm sick of seeing comic book, old school thriller copies. I give props for new comedy's, action, and drama movies. WE ARE THE USA LETS COME UP WITH SOMETHING NEW.Thank you for your time.Eric

    All I gotta say about the movie was it was a good movie. Not an exciting film to see on DVD, but the movie was good, thought it was thrilling, Luke Wilson and Kate Beckinsale really did good work, but the whole start to finish was simply good but not soooo Oh, Wow, it really an edge off my seat feeling.
