Horror Hotel


Released in 1960 and Also known as City of the Dead, Horror Hotel is a true classic. Modern-day films rely on modern-day special effects. Back in the day of B/W special effects were in their infancy and a good horror needed to rely on atmosphere. Horor hotel has atmosphere and I rate that over effects any day. Most of the story takes place in a strange village, with even stranger locals. To make things stranger still it is always foggy in the village and when a stranger comes to town, in the curvy form of student,Nan Barlow, who is researching witchcraft, she gets a closer insight into the subject than she might have liked. A young-looking Christopher Lee has a supporting role in the film and manages to add a little extra darkness to the proceedings just by his very presence.
