A group of disparate people get stranded in a motel during a storm and end up getting killed one by one. Tension builds up nicely but then the story pulls the rug from under us by revealing what it’s all about. Nothing makes sense, least of all the explanation. As if this wasn’t bad enough, we also get the standard last second “shock” ending.
