review by
Mike Haberfelner

Heading West on the run from her abusive husband Eric (Walter Hochbrueckner), Nikki (Dawna Lee Heising) one after the other picks up two hitchhikers, Misty (Llenelle Gibson) and Crystal (Angel Princess), both running from something and searching for a better future out West. Now ultimately, Nikki's progress proves to be too slow for both so they hitch rides elsewhere - only for all three woman to bump into one another again in a Jackie's (Vera R. Taylor) diner in a one-horse-town deceivingly called Paradise. At first though, the town seems harmless enough, with an over-eager but under-attractive Don Juan (Jason Wilburn) and a hotel clerk (Mel Novak) with a mother complex and a not exactly healthy interest in human taxidermy being the sorest thumbs sticking out - so nothing Nikki can't handle. But beneath the surface, there's also stories of disappeared businessmen and masked killers, and Eric is also on the way to get Nikki back - or else ...


Now narratively, The Paradise Motel is anything but straight forward, often being more associative than straight forward in its sequence of events, and that can be at times quite confusing - which works for the movie rather than against it though as it only heightens the mystery angle of the movie, a mystery more in terms of David Lynch's weirder movies than your typical whodunnit, where the interpretation of events is left to the audience themselves rather than meticulously laid out in the third act. Now I will freely admit, this movie is not on a level with David Lynch, but it's a valiant and actually quite fascinating effort to make a thriller with a difference.
