Hotel Noir

Update: Hotel Noir is now (as of 10/9) available on VOD.

Sebastian Gutierrez is that rare director who can make a sleek-looking film while getting actors to say the strangest things in the most sincere ways. His work on Women in Trouble and Elektra Luxx proved as much, elevating B-movies into the A+ range, and now his ensemble sensibilities return with a 1958 detective story flair in Hotel Noir. In the film, the detective (Rufus Sewell) hides away in a hotel waiting for killers to find him, and it looks like he has plenty to hold his attention. Malin Ackerman is dancing and taking showers; Carla Gugino is speaking easy and being smokey; and Mandy Moore is…seducing Danny DeVito.


Plus, genre legend Robert Forster gets a nice T-bone steak of a role to chew on. Not bad at all.

Check out the trailer for yourself:

Release dates for the film aren’t firm, but a recent Kickstarter campaign has ensured that it’ll be on more than a few screens. Hopefully one near you.
