The Motel Mistress has seen better days. The plaster of the facade is flaking and the neon sign doesn’t work properly. All the same, a few of the rooms are taken. Rooms designed to fulfill the fantasies of the guests. And they’re more on the eccentric side: the sugardaddy in Room 7 is into sadistic games with schoolgirls, 5 is home to an eccentric former child star who’s gone to ground and painted all the wallsblack. The staff, too, play their part in the motel’s charm, where during the night the oddities and eccentricities reach a climax. Motel Mist is avisually breath-taking, bizarre, confusing genre mix of feminist exploitation movie and sci-fi social criticism
