Through a variety of unpleasant circumstances, eleven people find themselves thrown together in a Nevada motel, cut off from the outside world by rainstorms and floods. Then someone starts killing them, one by one…. The film builds tension quickly, using cuts and flashbacks to make you question the identity and motives of the key characters. Then it throws in a supernaturnal element, and you start to wonder if it’s going to change from a whodunnit into a whatdunnit. But that isn’t the last of the plot twists. Unfortunately the major twist removes a lot of the tension, and the last quarter of the film feels and anti-climactic in comparison. Still, a set of nice performances from John Cusack, Ray Liotta, and a host of good character actors set it above the average psycho thriller.
