The place is 1950s California, Bridey and Chester DeSoto check into a Anaheim motel.

This couple may not be what they seem. For starters, her husband rents TWO rooms... Why?

Bridey only seems to be concerned about two things, DISNEYLAND, and sex.

Chester thinks his wife is cheating on him, so he hires a guy to spy on Bridey. Unfortunately for Chester, his suspicions are correct.

As the night progresses, you'll encounter a frustrated female newlywed, and a voyeuristic-masturbating-motel-manager.

But, that's not all, we also get blackmail, beatnik style poetry, amnesia, and murder.....

DESIRE AND HELL AT SUNSET MOTEL was written and directed by Alien Castle.

It stars.....

Sherilyn Fenn as Bridey DeSoto

Whip Hubley as Chester DeSoto

David Hewlett as Deadpan aka Dwayne

David Johansen as Auggie

Shannon Sturges as Louella

Paul Bartel ( 1938 - 2000 ) as the motel manager.

QUOTES from the movie.....

"Money is the genitalia of our country"

"You bow-legged slut!... You'd hop on a dog if it was panting!"

Sherilyn Fenn kicks ass in this role. She really becomes her character.

In the United States, it was released on VHS by MEDIA HOME ENTERTAINMENT / VIDEO TREASURES.

As I write this, DESIRE AND HELL AT SUNSET MOTEL still has NOT been released on legit region one DVD.

I've only seen overpriced grey-market DVD-R's, and region four DVDs.

FYI: you may be able to find an online video.
