Four of the most celebrated directors in the independent film community pooled their talents for this episodic comedy. Ted (Tim Roth) is the new bellboy at a beautiful but decaying luxury hotel; he is not having a good time of it on New Year's Eve, his first night on the job. In one room, a coven of witches are trying to summon the spirit of the goddess Diana; each of the witches must bring a different bodily fluid for their spell to work, but Eva (Ione Skye), who was supposed to bring semen, managed to lose her supplies, and needs Ted's help for a last-minute replacement.

Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"The results are mainly awful, and even Roth got saddled with a mannered part that he can't comfortably play."
‑ Jonathan Rosenbaum, Chicago Reader
"The less said about this career-denting fiasco, the better."
‑ Janet Maslin, New York Times
"An utterly lackluster production that most involved would be wise to keep out of their portfolios. The only director to come out of this mess looking good is Rodriguez."
‑ Peter T. Chattaway, Patheos
"O episódio dirigido por Taratino, que funciona como uma grande preparação para uma excelente tirada final, é memorável. Pena que temos que assistir a uma hora de besteiras para chegar até ele."
‑ Pablo Villaca, Cinema em Cena
"Even Tim Roth, an otherwise dependable actor, disappoints with overacting."
‑ Dragan Antulov, rec.arts.movies.reviews
"Four of the hottest indie directors--Anders, Rockwell, Tarantino, and Rodrigues--miss a unique opportunity to display their idiosyncratic talents resulting in a tedious anthology in which 2 segments are inept, one barely decent, and one OK (guess whose)"
‑ Emanuel Levy, Variety
"Sounds better than it is."
‑ Jack Mathews, Los Angeles Times
"Begins with two awful segments, which you'll want to fast-forward past to get to the third and fourth segments."
‑ Rob Gonsalves, eFilmCritic.com
"The final tale is a real treat; too bad you have to wade through such awfulness just to get there."
‑ Scott Weinberg, eFilmCritic.com
"We all have fun goofing around with our friends -- it's just that when you're four hot-hot-hot directors, you can goof around with your friends and get Miramax to release it, with predictably unimpressive results."
‑ James Rocchi, Netflix
"They should have called this One Room and released it as a Rodriguez short."
‑ , Time Out
"The result is a batch of shrill, self-indulgent sketches that turn so wretched in spots you start to wonder if the filmmakers wanted them to be bad."
‑ Edward Guthmann, San Francisco Chronicle
"A ghastly train wreck of a movie, littered with the corpses of promising careers."
‑ , TV Guide's Movie Guide
"Worth it for the Rodriguez' episode, but otherwise nothing much."
‑ Ken Hanke, Mountain Xpress (Asheville, NC)
"The first two rooms are indeed pure crap, but the second half of the film, while not as good as the directors' separate films, makes for a funny enough comedy anyway."
‑ Kevin N. Laforest, Montreal Film Journal
