"B" Movie Uniquely done

The industry for what we know as "B" style format films has many that are ridiculously done. New Terminal Hotel "AKA" "Do Not Disturb" re-released in 2013 has a creative flare to it's style. The story was unique and fresh as a man whose fiancé was murdered looks to exact revenge in a abysmal manner. The style in which this film was shot gives it the edge. The acting is not horrible as it appears to be emotionally driven with a few of the actors.

The one flaw in my opinion is this film was a waste of Corey Haim's talent and he should not have been in it. Good writing, good character development but the editing was shaky and split in a few places. I give this a 4 out of 10

Not engaging

Don is a screenwriter who has been successful. He chooses to live in a seedy hotel where he gets intermittent visits from the foul-mouthed harridan who is his agent. He decides to brutally cut up a producer against whom he has a grudge. He similarly murders others. Eventually it ends.

Stephen Geoffreys (who player Evil Ed so engagingly in the original Fright Night) is now middle aged and not so engaging. Neither is this film, written and directed by a BC Furtney. It is slow, boring, and not very pleasant or entertaining.

I did not enjoy it and I do not recommend it.

Spoilers follow ...

The first time we see writer Don Malek (Stephen Geoffreys – who bears a resemblance to actor Andy Serkis), he is brutally torturing his boss Stanley Glissberg (Anthony Colliano), who is bound and naked in an ice filled bathtub. We're not sure why this is happening. The accompanying soundtrack sounds like the swarming of a hundred electronic bees.

Malek stays at this hotel because the ambiance is beneficial to his writing. His agent is Ava Collins (Tiffany Shepis) whose every sentiment is littered with so many profanities, she (possibly inadvertently) provides this strange, dark film with its few moments of raw humour. As time goes on, she is revealed not to be quite the stabilising influence on Malek she initially seems.

The small budget and direction conspire to give the hotel a pleasingly run-down atmosphere. The walls are permanently stained and there is clutter throughout, and Malek's neighbour Spitz (Ezra Buzzington, who would give an effective performance in 2012's 'Lost Lake') is a rampant sexual, permanently furious paraplegic.

Corey Hiam, who died in 2010, also features as a drunkard called Jasper Crash, inexplicably with a (bad) British accent. Other than that, he is surprisingly effective, Crash's wrecked disposition sadly reflective Hiam's own at that time.

This collection of grotesque characters helps imbue 'New Terminal Hotel' with a heightened sense of the macabre, so much so that the characters, no matter how finely explored, remain raw and enigmatic. This gives the film a truly odd, skewed sense of horror that is commendable for resulting in a production unlike anything else. Definitely an acquired taste, and deserving of more than just one viewing.

Released as 'New Terminal Hotel' in 2010, this met with little fanfare and was re-released as 'Do Not Disturb' three years later.
