System Requirements

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, All Movie Guide

Once upon a time I ended up with a VHS recording of this movie in my apartment and in some random fit of boredom (after having looked at the tape for months), I popped it on. Much to my suprise, it is brilliant! If you are a fan of old, creepy black and white flicks or of Christopher Lee, RENT THIS MOVIE! What a gem. And damned near impossible to find - seriously. I've looked around for it on an occassion or 2.

This movie is very well done. Very spooky! Sometimes a little too much dry ice fog, but effective nonetheless. The three lead actresses are great. Patricia Jessel is great as a 300-year-old witch. Betta St. John and Venetia Stevenson are very good damsels in distress. And Christopher Lee is, well, Christopher Lee: a little hammy, but good. The director clearly knew how to direct women better than men.
