Reviews

One year ago, Agnes Rickover attended the opening night at the Bates Hotel and Haunted Hayride to see her best friend Lily's fiery death in a spectacle gone wrong. After a year of obsessing over a murder investigation everyone else thinks is open and shut, Agnes goes to work at the Haunt in an attempt to confront her trauma. Horrific events begin to claim the lives of her coworkers and Agnes must figure out what is behind all of the "accidents" before more people die.

Format: DVD
Actually... it’s more like ‘Welcome to amateur hour (and twenty minutes).’ This, incidentally, is about an hour and twenty minutes more than you’ll probably feel is worth spending with this film.

‘The Haunting of Bates Hotel’ has no actors that you’ve probably heard of. Yes, I know, many a great film has been made without stars. Tom Cruise or Brad Pitt alone doesn’t guarantee a film’s success. However, this one doesn’t just not have stars; it also doesn’t have actors. Seriously... these people’s LACK of acting talent is almost amazing. I know it’s a horror movie and so I wasn’t expecting Oscar-worthy performances, but this is going to extremes. I really can’t let the bad acting lie... it was like they just let anyone on set and allowed them to say the lines how they liked.

The film is about a *supposedly* haunted house on some farmland in small-town America. Only it’s not haunted and everyone knows that. The owners just put on some horror-themed events to bring in the money. However, a year after some girl gets horribly burned to death by ‘accident,’ more killings start to emerge.

It’s not all bad (most, but not all). The setting itself is quite a nice place for a slasher movie, i.e. a place where there are already *deliberately* plenty of gory props to confuse and startle the hapless victims. And there are some nice homages to existing horror icons, i.e. Freddy Krueger’s jumper etc.

But, the odd brief glimpse of Jason Vorhees’ head-sack isn’t enough to save this catastrophe of a film. It tries to be really funny. It fails. It falls flat on every attempt at humour and just comes across as cringe-worthy.

Format: DVD
The film opens a bit confusing as it appears to be a trailer for itself. This picture has nothing to do with the infamous Bates Motel, other than the name. A family operates a haunted hayride/farm in Gradyville, Pa. Agnes (Jean Louise O'Sullivan) witnesses her best friend Lillie (Aleksandra Svetlichnaya) die. Agnes' life has gone down hill. Her policeman dad (Robert Haag) and by far the worse actor in this film, forces Agnes to work at that same haunted Bates farm as therapy.

Soon everyone around her is being murdered. The film operates as a who-dun-it for the first hour with the formula cat and mouse ending.

The role of Robert Haag as a policeman was indeed a downer. The film did create some unique characters such as Wayne (Matthew Mastronardi) a masked gay chainsaw killer. This has some similarities to 80's style slasher films, but lacks style.

Works as a low end rental at best.

As nothing to do with Norman and his motel, misleading cover. It's about an attraction called Bates hotel obviously changed due to copyright but it's a filmed at this real attraction. Awful plot- nobody knows what is going on it as no substance and is very boring. One quote that stood out was when junior is been interviewed an he's talking about how 'family friendly' his ride is... but people have died.... the reporter says 'well it happens people have died at Disneyland' in such a innocent tone how this was allowed I don't know! I wouldn't waste your time or money on this film leave it on the shelves at asda people ! Awful film awful acting it shows Ryan Dunn and bam from jackass at beginning the only plus to this movie seems they lived in the area!!

Don't watch this film expecting norman bates, or any part of the pyscho films, this is just about a famous halloween attraction called hayride, and with the death of a employer, who has been burnt to death under suspicious means, then one year later her friend gets a job at the same attraction, she investigates her death but the killer is back to his old tricks. Rubbish film and one to forget.

I'm genuinely surprised this stuff is allowed to be sold its that awful. You cant even call it a film. I knew it was going to be awful just from the adverts shown before the film. I think I lasted about 15 minutes. Acting was awful, camera guys were awful and I wasn't sure if it was meant to be a spoof or a horror..

Format: DVD
The cover clearly titles the movie "Hotel" while everything within the movie refers to Bates "Motel". During the opening title sequence a new title has clearly been inserted to change the title to Bates Hotel and I can only assume this is to avoid legal action by Universal Studios.

This film has no connection to the Norman Bates/Psycho series.

It is in fact set at a genuine tourist attraction/ theme park located outside Philadelphia which opens for the month of October annually. Patrons pay to be taken through a series of elaborate horror sets while "actors" jump out to scare them. As a result, the sets are far better than you would expect from this very low budget slasher movie. There is nothing original about the plot, however, I won't give away any details just in case you decide to buy.

It is thankfully short - 74 minutes - but the acting is pretty poor. The director obviously struggled to decide whether to go for all out spoof or straight horror. This means that the sporadic attempts at humour jar rather than enhance proceedings.

So what you get is a pedestrian slasher movie, poorly acted but with better than average sets and props. It's really only for hard core fans of the genre.
