Bad Times at The El Royale is in theaters on October 12th, 2018.

The El Royal is a hotel situated right on the state line between California and Nevada. Six strangers end up at this hotel all for different reasons and end up becoming intertwined

With an amazing cast including John Hamm and Jeff Bridges this movie brings a unique style to the genre. Cynthia Erivo stole the show as Darlene, an aspiring singer with the voice of an angel. She stands up against men who think they can have whatever power they want over women. Many different characters from all backgrounds - I’m sure you’ll find a favorite too!

The movie was very entertaining but also felt long at times. You see the characters from different perspectives but it’s all part of the same story, it starts to feel a bit draining towards the end.

I got a very “Tarantino” feel from this film, if you like interesting art house movies you’ll like this one.

Rating: 3.5 out of 5
