Vacancy - Frank Whaley and Luke Wilson


The owner of a motel scares and eventually murders his guests. All this is captured as part of a snuff movie. It’s a minimalist film with a simple plot. The girl character in the few minutes of the film was not that interesting. Sometimes its nice when all the characters are tight from start to finish. But once they reached the motel, everything flowed quite well under the direction of Nimrod Antal.. Ha ha, his name is Nimrod. Actually he is Hungarian, so perhaps Nimrod means something else in Hungary.

The innkeeper is an eccentric evil man played by the actor Frank Whaley. Some might remember Frank Whaley as a young boy in the movie, Cold Dog Soup - another good movie with Randy Quaid. Randy Quaid is yet another under-rated actor, who is more known to be the brother of Dennis Quaid.

Anyway in Vacancy, Frank Whaley is unrecognizable with an odd moustache and sinister glasses. Whaley’s excellent performance as a quiet and vile killer is what made the movie worth watching.

Luke Wilson, whom I first saw in the movie Idiocracy was also acting.
In acting a character, the actor has to bring out what he has inside to play the character. There are many actors who try to play characters, but because they don’t have much of a character to begin with, their pissy-ness and whiney-ness is very vivid on screen, if its not that, then their arrogance is painted all over.

Strangely enough, Luke Wilson is NOT like that. He plays his characters quite well. I can thus conclude that contrary to popular belief, being the son of a Texas billionaire does not necessarily make you an arrogant whiny ass…

Of course I conclude each post by stating that if you are interested in finding more about me and my one-lady sketch comedy films, visit my main website and watch some of my little sketches and films online.

Happy April Fools Day Everybody

April Fools Day is a fun day of pranks.
I pulled a little one about ending my show. I honestly didn't think anybody would notice. But I got a handful of people who were quite perturbed to even think that the show would end. Thank you all for your support.

It's tough doing a show, and trying to pay bills at the same time, as all of this can be very time and energy consuming. And by bills, I mean mainly rent and utility bills. But anyway, who knows what the future holds...

But whatever it is, the show will NEVER stop. So remember everybody, your support means a lot to me, even if you can't donate just making the effort to watch it means a lot.

As you all know, DVD's are only $5, its enough to cover shipping but certainly not enough to make a large profit. The DVD's are at this low price because I am hoping that most viewers get a chance to watch it on their Television. It flows better on TV. I put a lot of details, work and effort into my show and sketch films. All I ask is that the viewer watch it attentively, instead of watching it on the internet as a way of passing time.

Television programs are meant to be enjoyed. There is nothing like sitting on a comfy couch and watching a fun show on a decent sized Television Set..

Anyway, folks ...even when I'm a little old lady, I hope you all continue to watch my program and films.
