Where they hell to guys find guys like this? Archie (Mickey Layman) is off on some sort of corporate training in Ft Lauderdale. He’s brought along his buddy and boy toy Ryan (Johnson) who’s whacked out on molly and mooches endlessly. They camp out in the less fashionable Death Stalker Marriott, and rumor has it (as it always does) the ghost in room 666 still hasn’t checked out. While Archie is learning the corporate way, Ryan has picked up ultra-hot Francesca. She has an Eastern European accent and no body hair, and you don’t have to take my word for these facts. She’s as big a mooch as Ryan, just one rung down the ladder. She has to eat and after one of her clients stiffed her in more than one way she want Ryan and his Chekhovian knife to make things right. It might be the drugs talking but he’s up for it and soon blood is spurting. But maybe not, the ghost Archie saw might be more real than he imaging. This is a pretty cool ghost story; it does not feel like one at all until the end and when the light come up you know you’ve been on a carefully constructed ride. Just be prepared for plenty of nudity and yeah, it’s not really room 666. That just sounds scarier.
This commentary was prepared from a technical rehearsal.
