Movie Info

Prolific screenwriter Mario Gariazzo directed this entertainingly low-rent softcore romp set at a shady no-tell motel where a photographer surreptitiously photographs trysting lovers in order to blackmail them. For no other reason than Gariazzo's extensive background in giallo thrillers, there's a black-gloved killer roaming around, and Gloria Fava belts some horrendous songs to Ubaldo Continello's peculiar score. Ray Lovelock stars with Antonio Sabato, Marino Mase, and Antonio De Teffe. Fans of Andrea Bianchi's flamboyant Malabimba (released the same year) will be amused to see Enzo Fisichella and Patrizia De Rossi together again. There is, of course, plenty of skin for the casual viewer.

Critic Reviews for Play Motel

All Critics (1)

It's the type of premise that seems ripe for reconstitution in some pulpy, modernized yarn, ultimately wasted on the tawdry silliness here.
