"...This creepy mood piece has a surprisingly large following..."
The fetching Venetia Stevenson stars in this excellent horror film as Nan Barlow, a young college student who is writing a paper on witchcraft. On winter break, Nan travels to New England to do some research and, on one of her professor's recommendations, stays in a small hotel run by the spirit of an undead witch. Soon, Nan finds that rest of the hotels boarders are witches as well and that she is about to become their annual Candalmas Eve sacrifice. Atmospheric and genuinely scary, HORROR HOTEL not only stars the inimitable Christopher Lee, but boasts direction by John Llewellyn Moxley, who would later go on to direct episodes of classic TV shows such as THE AVENGERS, HAWAII FIVE-O, MISSION: IMPOSSIBLE, CHARLIE'S ANGELS, KUNG FU, MAGNUM P.I., and MIAMI VICE. The 78 minute uncut version is titled CITY OF THE DEAD.
A student of witchcraft arrives in a small New England town to do research, and discovers a deadly new coven ready to wreak havoc on the village.
