It’s not clear what kind of movie this wants to be. It feels like a Tarantino wannabe on slow motion without the snappy banter or extreme violence. What’s left is the back stories of a group of people who checked into this unusual hotel and how they converge for dark outcomes. The cast includes Jeff Bridges, Jon Hamm, Dakota Johnson and Chris Hemsworth (who makes the experience worthwhile by strutting around semi-shirtless for an extended period). Having patience as the disappointing plot unfolds doesn’t pay off with a shocker. It’s attractively shot and interesting, but ultimately a long disappointment (2:20). Two newish actors turn in the most interesting performances: The woman who plays the singer (Cynthia Erivo). NOTE: She’s currently in Richmond playing the lead in the Harriet Tubman biopic. The man who plays the hotel clerk (Lewis Pullman). NOTE: He’s the son of actor Bill Pullman.
