Synopsis[edit]

The current synopsis is taken word-for-word from the official site. Isn't that a copyright violation? I'm not certain, so I won't take it down just yet. Elizabennet | talk 03:25, 28 March 2007 (UTC)

You're right Elizabeth. I have a feeling this stub was setup BY someone from Sony pictures. --Art8641 14:27, 17 April 2007 (UTC)

The current synopsis is sloppy, inaccurate, and gives away the ending. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 75.72.65.192 (talk) 16:10, 8 October 2007 (UTC)

i dont know if this is important or not[edit]

I just noticed that "vacancy" sounds like "they-can-see" which is what the movie is mostly about, and I don't know if this is important or not. Could go under trivia maybe. —The preceding unsigned comment was added by 68.116.187.228 (talk) 02:23, 4 April 2007 (UTC).

I think that would qualify as original research. --  timc  talk   23:25, 14 April 2007 (UTC)
Not only would that be original research, but it would also be entirely pointless to include in the trivia. 24.159.210.122 03:27, 30 April 2007 (UTC)
No one else said it, so I'm going to have to. It shouldn't go under trivia, or anywhere at all, because it's plain dumb. :) 210.49.15.52 (talk) 18:09, 21 December 2007 (UTC)


I just updated this article by indicating that the DVD has both fullscreen & anamorphic widescreen versions of the film. I know this to be true because I have the DVD of this and it not only says so but I also tried the DVD out and it's true.

I just thought that I would share.Frschoonover (talk) 01:39, 18 June 2008 (UTC)

Fair use rationale for Image:Vacancy.jpg[edit]

Nuvola apps important.svg

Image:Vacancy.jpg is being used on this article. I notice the image page specifies that the image is being used under fair use but there is no explanation or rationale as to why its use in this Wikipedia article constitutes fair use. In addition to the boilerplate fair use template, you must also write out on the image description page a specific explanation or rationale for why using this image in each article is consistent with fair use.

Please go to the image description page and edit it to include a fair use rationale. Using one of the templates at Wikipedia:Fair use rationale guideline is an easy way to insure that your image is in compliance with Wikipedia policy, but remember that you must complete the template. Do not simply insert a blank template on an image page.

If there is other fair use media, consider checking that you have specified the fair use rationale on the other images used on this page. Note that any fair use images uploaded after 4 May, 2006, and lacking such an explanation will be deleted one week after they have been uploaded, as described on criteria for speedy deletion.

Sony anti-piracy technology.[edit]

I wrote a (very small scope) entry in relation to the anti-piracy issue with MANY Sony DVD releases of late. I kept it narrow in scope (Australia specific) because I can't substantiate any claims for other countries, if anyone else has knowledge on this, please share. I rented the DVD about a half dozen times (ie: took it back and swapped for another) and tried it on five different DVD players before digging around on the net to find it was a common problem for the AU release at least.

It's interesting to note that anti-piracy technology merely messes stuff up for home users; in frustration I just went and downloaded a torrent of it which (GASP!) worked fine.  :P They should call it anti-homeusery.  :P 210.49.15.52 (talk) 18:12, 21 December 2007 (UTC)

It would be great if we could cite this information and expand the section. Kushalt 21:43, 29 December 2007 (UTC)

Frank Whaley[edit]

Is it just me, or in the film does Frank Whaley's character (the creepy motel manager) look (and sound) just like Ned Flanders? ;-) --Legis (talk - contribs) 20:09, 9 May 2008 (UTC)

Plot editing[edit]

Wow, I just had to edit the plot section. No offense to whoever wrote it but it was a mess(i.e. grammatically, spelling, tense usage). No ideas or thoughts were deleted just corrections to the aforementioned areas. No need to thank me. All in a day's work.--76.31.242.174 (talk) 23:29, 20 February 2009 (UTC)

I did some additional editing to the plot summary section. Mostly fixing inaccurate details (as far as I can tell the movie was never said to be set in California; the masks were not blue; etc), but expanded some parts slightly to maintain a slightly clearer narrative thread IMO. Hope I didn't end up adding too much detail. WLight (talk) 21:08, 29 July 2010 (UTC)

Nimrod[edit]

At one point someone on ghre says "(the aptly named nimrod") or something to that extent. Fix it, please. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 24.68.79.101 (talk) 04:03, 16 July 2009 (UTC)
