What a thriller is supposed to be: tension, suspense, and jump-out-of-your-seat scares
I had an awesome time watching Vacancy. It really got my adrenaline pumping, and twice it made me jump so much that I was embarrassed. Never have I shaken so violently at a shock scare. The acting was great, the characters were extremely believable, and the tension was incredible.

I love horror films, but they often disappoint me in that they trade true suspense and tension for gore. An amount of gore is necessary to invoke fear of the villains, and I feel like the director of Vacancy used just enough. What he is really skilled at is racking up the arm-rest gripping, hand-fidgeting tension. I was still calming down after the movie had long ended.

If you liked Red Eye or the recent The Hitcher, you'll definitely like this. If you didn't like either of those, try this out anyway. I don't think you'll be disappointed.
