Prequel to the 2007 'torture porn' horror film 'Vacancy'. When three young people (Agnes Bruckner, Arjay Smith and Trevor Wright) check into the Meadow View Inn for the night, they have no idea that the motel is run by sick-minded snuff movie exponent Mr Smith (Scott G. Anderson) and his sadistic accomplices. Will the trio get out alive?

3.0 out of 5 stars Surprisingly good - 3.5 stars 6 Mar 2009
Although it doesn't have the big names in like the first film, I found `Vacancy 2: The First Cut' to be a much better movie. The story is based 3 years before the first and begins with the owners of the Meadow View Motel secretly video-taping guests having sex for profit, but one guest murders the woman that he is with and the owners have it on tape. They capture the guest and after discussing what to do with him they realise that there may be more of a market for snuff films, so they blackmail him into helping them murder the guests in exchange for them not handing the tape over to the police. A young couple and their friend are then the latest "stars" of their movies.

I wasn't expecting much from this to be honest as I wasn't that impressed with the first film and straight-to-DVD horrors (particularly sequels) tend to be pretty rubbish, this however was very tense, good storyline, well acted and was generally just much better than the one that actually made it to the cinema. One of the things I didn't like about the first film was that there was no real reason for them making the snuff movies but in this one it explains why and actually makes watching the first one again more enjoyable. Again, it's not all that gory and the murders are very subtly filmed, which I liked as it gave it a more Hitchcock's Psycho feel about it.

Overall this is one of the better horror thrillers I've seen recently and is well worth checking out even if you're not a fan of the first film like me. I was very surprised at how good this film was and floats somewhere between 3 stars (the camera work wasn't that great and the story isn't that original) and 4 stars (still impressive and very exciting) so I'll give it a 3.5 star rating.

NOTE: Amazon's synopsis of this product has nothing to do with 'Vacancy 2' and I have no idea which film they are talking about, so ignore it!

There were mixed reviews about this film, but after seeing Vacancy, I fancied watching this one too and at £[], it was a bargain.

My husband also really enjoyed Vacancy, so we sat and watched Vacancy 2 and I must admit, we were pleasantly surprised at how good it was.

This film tells the story of how they came about making 'snuff movies'.

If you enjoyed the first one, I don't think you'll be disappointed with this one.

I do tend to read reviews before watching a film, but each to their own.

Definitely worth watching.

Vacancy 2 is a prequel, showing how the motel founded its snuff film empire. The origins story has been done already, Texas Chainsaw Massacre: The Beginning in particular. Like that film, Vacancy 2 resorts to horror clichés, ruining the potential of its original premise.

The motel owners are initially peeping toms, with camera setups recording each room, selling any hot action for a quick buck. When a brutal killing is captured on film, they enter more niche markets, going into business with the murderer, Mr Smith. They make plans to terrorise the motel residents when predictably, a group of teenagers arrive on the scene...
After an imaginative opening, which tells the story from the villain's perspective, Vacancy 2 soon degenerates into horror dross. Long, drawn out chases, horrendous acting, awful dialogue and illogical action sequences are all present and correct. It's a disappointing switch of focus; which destroys any originality, and the film overall.
