Movie Details

Heartbreak Motel enjoyed a brief theatrical life on the drive-in circuit, then settled down into Late Late Show screenings. Leslie Uggams stars as a singer whose car breaks down a million miles from nowhere. Taking refuge at a run-down motel (hence the title), she finds herself at the mercy of salivating rednecks. This low-grade horror effort manages to tap the talents of such formidable thespians as Shelley Winters, Slim Pickens, Ted Cassidy and Dub Taylor. ~ Hal Erickson, Rovi
