    Dark sexual intruige where no one is quite what they seem
    Certificate: 18
    Running Time: 112 mins
    Retail Price: £22.99
    Release Date:

    Innovative director Mike Figgis brings together a dazzling cast - Rhys Ifans, David Schwimmer, Saffron Burrows, Max Beesley, John Malcovich, Salma Hayek, Burt Reynolds, and Lucy Lui - in this story of dark sexual intruige where no one is quite what they seem and the staff are more in control than the guests. A film crew and actors arrive at a seemingly secure and beautiful Venetian hotel to film a version of the classic Jacobean tragedy `The Duchess of Malfi`.
    Shadowing the production are two rival entertainment reporters (Selma Hayek and Lucy Lui) who immediately start a war of egos. When the director (Ifans) is put out of commission, the producer (Schwimmer) must take over the production and that`s when the cannibals and vampires start picking off the film crew and guests. Figgis brings an ennervatingly fresh approach to his film-making. Add to this the surplus of bizarre sexual activity and horrific cannibalistic images and Hotel becomes one place you will not want to check into alone...
