Prior to watching Expecting Mercy, I had read three reviews of it. Two actually deemed the film a pleasant surprise, while one tore it up. Considering I’m a sucker for films with a Skinemax-like vibe to it, what with the plot description promising a couple on the run from the law encountering the owner of a hotel who watches his guests on secret cameras and all, I felt that I was more than likely going to join the critic masses (yes, all four of us) in decreeing Expecting Mercy to be worth a look.

Sorrowfully, I was disappointed. Expecting Mercy is a bad movie with bad acting, bad twists, and a languid pace.

A briefcase-carrying couple that just recently eloped arrive at a bed and breakfast after their car breaks down. The owners of the hotel, a seemingly happy, middle-aged couple who make their money primarily off the domineering husband’s online video sales of specialty documentaries, welcome them into their honeymoon suite with open arms. What they don’t know is that the husband has a fetish for videotaping his patrons, and every word that the couple say about their past endeavors, not to mention their sexual escapades, on tape. While he feels the need to blackmail the clients, his wife comes to discover something about the newlyweds that will change her loyalty by the film’s end.

While the cast and crew tried to make an intriguing tale of greed, sex, and violence, they’ve failed on all counts.

Check out Simple Revenge, also from MTI Home Video, instead.

DVD: Standard Direct-to-Video Release.
