City of the Dead (1960)
78 min.
Directed by John Moxey.
With Christopher Lee, Bett St. John, Dennis Lotis, Patricia Jessel, Venetia Stevenson, Valentine Dyall.
From the same year as the original Village of the Damned, this atmospheric British horror film tells the story of a college girl who visits a New England town to study witchcraft and its history.

Little does she know she isn't doing her history homework...she's going to be witnessing current events!

You see, the innkeeper (played with flair by Jessel) heads up a coven of witches. The power of this classic chiller comes from all the pieces fitting together: good acting, creepy mists, dank caverns, scary lighting, and a well-written script.

Also known as Horror Hotel.
