Motel Hell

Motel Hell ★★★½

This movie is crazy. The music and the setting and the very insane things going on behind the motel all feel tonally separate from each other: the music is serious, the setting has a very late 70s/early 80s realism to it, and the horror shenanigans are almost cartoonish. Somehow it all worked for me. I think the characters were interesting and likable enough, and of course there is the John Ratzenberger Effect, even though I don't think he speaks at all!
