• City of the Dead - 1960

RATED: PG-13

City of the Dead (US title: Horror Hotel) is a 1960 film directed by John Llewellyn Moxey and starring Christopher Lee and Valentine Dyall. Produced in England but set in America, the British actors were required to speak with American accents throughout.  On the recommendation of her professor (Christopher Lee), a young female student (played by Venetia Stevenson) travels to the fictional Massachusetts town of Whitewood to do some research into witchcraft. She finds the town occupied by the reincarnation of an infamous witch (played by Patricia Jessel) burned at the stake in the 17th century; in order to sustain her immortality, Virgins must be sacrificed to her every year--and this year, the student has been the chosen victim.
