Terence Fisher – Dracula: Prince of Darkness (1966)

A group of English tourists are seeking a place to stay for the evening while travelling in the Carpathian mountains. The local monastery is full up and there are no vacancies at the inns, either. Our travellers wind up at Castle Dracula, which looks quaint enough in the daylight. Father Sandor from the monastery has warned them away from the place, but they stupidly ignore him. As night falls, one of the men is abducted by the castle’s caretaker, who upends him above a tub and slashes his throat. He bleeds into the tub, over the dusty remains therein, and suddenly, Dracula rises again and promptly transforms one of the women into a vampire wanton. Read More »

John Llewellyn Moxey – The City of the Dead (1960)

Quote:
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. 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. **** out of 5 stars – All Movie Guide Read More »
