Right, well I wasn't really sure what I was getting into here when I sat down to watch the 2019 movie "Motel Acacia", except for it being a horror movie. And being an avid fan of the horror genre, of course I sat down to watch this movie, as I hadn't already seen it.<br/><br/>Turns out that I might have skipped on it, because this movie was not good. In fact, it was so lacking in entertainment value that I really don't fully understand the purpose of the storyline. It was just a mess of a storyline, especially because nothing was properly explained or revealed.<br/><br/>Especially the setting of the movie made absolutely no sense to me. Where in the world was this supposed to be taking place? I just couldn't grasp that, and it just added to the confusion of an already befuddled storyline.<br/><br/>The acting in the movie, however, was adequate at least. But that hardly mattered, because the movie was so weighed down by a dubious and questionable storyline and script.<br/><br/>Visually then "Motel Acacia" was actually quite good. The effects were rather nice for a movie such as this. And I will say that the creature designs were definitely nice. But again, the special effects and CGI team could only muster so little to make amends for the movie's massive shortcomings.<br/><br/>All in all, "Motel Acacia" is not worth the time or effort, much less the money. I am rating it a generous three out of ten stars - mostly because of the visuals and acting. I managed to sit through the entire movie, but this is not a movie that I will ever be returning to for a second viewing.
In the cold west, Motel Acacia is tasked with exterminating immigrants by the government through a BED, haunted with the spirit of a Filipino tree demon, that eats men and impregnates women. A young Filipino man, JC, is groomed by his tyrannical Father to take over the business.
