A respectable family drives along Route 66 toward Disneyland. They decide to spend the night in a budget motel and to hide the children to cut costs. The father and his wife look pretty out of place in these surroundings, despite their respectability. You see, most clients here pay by the hour. A choice selection of colourful types earn their money in dubious ways. Drugs, sex and violence rule here, and an illegal dentist also plies his trade.
Behind the Red Motel Door is a homage to Rope (Alfred Hitchcock, 1948), the classic film set in real time and one location. The result is a black comedy shot with 38 actors in a period of only two days. Cast and crew worked with few resources but plenty of artistic freedom. This musical 'sneak peek' behind closed doors is also a film experiment by the makers, through the use of small, digital cameras that could reach all the dark corners of the hotel.
