File:Four-rooms 3404.jpg

Four Rooms is a 1995 Black Comedy Round Robin Anthology film consisting of four segments. Ted is a young (and rather loopy) bellhop working at a once famous Los Angeles hotel that has fallen from grace and become a haven for criminals and creeps. On New Years Eve, he ends up with an interesting set of clientèle as the only employee on staff. Hilarity Ensues.

Honeymoon Suite - The Missing Ingredient

A coven of witches gather for a ceremony to resurrect their petrified goddess. Four of them brought their ingredients, but the fifth failed to bring hers; semen. When Ted shows up, he happens to be the closest male available.

Written and directed by Allison Anders.

Room 404 - The Wrong Man

After some drunk people at an Ambiguously Gay disco party ask for ice and screw up their room number, Ted ends up entering the room of a man holding his Bound and Gagged wife at gunpoint. Mistaking him for someone else, he gets forced to partake in a particularly odd S&M game because the man has a "big fucking gun".

Written and directed by Alexandre Rockwell

Room 309 - The Misbehavers

A Mexican gangster and his wife decide to leave their kids at the room for the night while they go to a party. Rather than call a babysitter, they pay Ted five hundred dollars to tend to them and make sure they don't misbehave. Finagle's Law immediately takes hold.

Written and directed by Robert Rodriguez.

Penthouse - The Man From Hollywood

After a brief phone call to his boss to be let off for the night, Ted ends up making one last stop. Chester Rush is a famous director (played by Quentin Tarantino) holding a private party with some of his buddies from the business. After seeing an old episode of Alfred Hitchcock Presents where a man bets his little finger he can start a lighter ten times in a row, they decide to replicate it. Ted is asked to be the hatchet man.

Written and directed by Quentin Tarantino.

Tropes used in Four Rooms include:


 Betty: [finally getting on the phone] Ted? What's the problem?

Ted: [eerily calm] Hello Betty. "What's the problem?" I haven't got a problem. I've got fucking problems. Plural. Wanna hear?

Betty: [disinterested] Sure.

Ted: [remaining calm] Well most recently, there's Room 309. There's this scary Mexican gangster dude poking his finger in my chest. There's his hooligan kids snapping their fingers at me. There's the putrid rotting corpse of a dead whore inside the mattress. There's a big fat needle, from God knows where, stuck in my leg, infecting me with God knows what. There's rooms blazing afire. And then there's me. Walking out the door. Right fucking now. Buenos noches!
