Synopsis


Horror Hotel
George Baxt scripted this extraordinarily good chiller from a story by Milton Subotsky, who also co-produced. A college student (Venetia Stevenson) with an interest in witchcraft goes to the Massachusetts town of Whitewood. It's a foggy, spooky town which gets even scarier when Stevenson discovers that the owner of the Raven's Inn, Mrs. Newlis (Patricia Jessel) is in fact a 268-year old witch. Jessel sold her soul to the Devil to regain her life after being burned at the stake. The whole town is her coven, including Stevenson's kindly history professor (Christopher Lee). Stevenson's boyfriend and brother arrive to look for her and discover human sacrifices and all sorts of evil goings-on. One of the few horror films of the period which still has the power to frighten, Horror Hotel is required viewing for genre fans. ~ Robert Firsching, Rovi

    The Blu-ray provided excellent picture and sound quality. This movie is in black & white but it is a gem. The story is about witches and it is still scary today. The story is well written and the acting is superb. Buy this and watch it because you won't be disappointed.

    City of the Dead (Horror Hotel) is a very good horror movie. It keeps you in suspense throughout the movie. Acting is very good and the scenery is very realistic.
