Hey,

A dark, atmospheric tale told slowly. Considered a horror movie, this film isn't intended for teens on a date night with buckets of popcorn. This film lives in the mind and that is where it plays.

The story is of a couple and their baby visiting friends and on the way back home it's determined that the husband shouldn't be driving and they stop at a downtown hotel. Almost immediately, odd events occur, and strangers momentarily pass in their way. The concierge – for example – has tales to tell the husband and all of them involve violent death. Little by little, it becomes apparent that maybe this wasn't the best place to stop. Then again, maybe it's them and not the hotel.

The couple learn things about each other and then slowly it seems that not only is the narrator unreliable, the movie itself may not be trusted.

The wife being a hallucination is the vibe that I got
from its trailer yet it's more than likely something else
entirely....just the interesting editing choice that they did put the
thought in my head.
