Are you a fan of Tales from the Darkside?
Some people are fans of horror anthologies. . . . and I'm one of them! So naturally, I was drawn to Horror Hotel, being that this is exactly what it is. I should also note that I'm a fan of low budget indie films as well, so this movie already had 2 things going for it in my book. I've heard some people describe this movie as a modern day take on the Twilight zone, but honestly, I think it compares better to the old "Tales from the Darkside" that was popular in the early to mid 1980's. I would definitely say, if you enjoyed the Tales from the Darkside show, you should check this out. If you didn't enjoy Tales from the Darkside, this may not be for you because it is of that ilk. So, to just double check the score card here......if you like Horror/Suspense anthologies, if you like low budget indies and if you like the old show "Tales from the Darkside", well, then this is just a no brainer for you to check out. Another thing I'd like to point out about the movie is the cinematography. It just looks good! The imagery is very nice to look at. As is the case with most horror anthologies, some of the stories here are better than others. I think they range from quite good to so-so. A lot of this just depends on individual preference and taste, however.
