Audience Reviews for It Happened at Nightmare Inn

It Happeened at Nightmare Inn (aka Nightmare Hotel) Starring: Aurora Bautista, Esperanza Roy, and Judy Geeson Director: Eugenio Martin Marta and Veronica, a pair of spinster sisters (Bautista and Roy) run an inn in a small Spanish town that's becoming increasingly popular with young people on backpacking tours. Becoming evermore offended by the loose morals they witness among the young women, they start killing them and hiding the bodies in wine casks in the inn's cellar. Their evil starts to come to light when Laura (Geeson) comes looking for her sister, whom she was supposed to meet at the inn for a shared vacation. "In Happened at Nightmare Inn" could be a truly frightening and excellent movie. The cast all put on great performances, the sexually repressed, holier-than-Jesus sisters make for a great pair of psychotic villians, and the terrifying scenes are truly terrifying (with the scene where Laura checks out the wine cellar, and the one where a baby witnesses the death of his mother being foremost among these). The location of the inn is itself a very creepy place and is almost a character in the film unto itself. Unfortunately, the movie has bad pacing, with a build-up that takes entirely too long and characters that are entirely too stupid just so there can be an extra 15 minutes of running time to the film. Worse, the climax has just a enough of an "angry villagers with torches and pitchforks" feel to go from suspenseful to unintentionally funny... although I must say they ALMOST got it right. "It Happened at Nightmare Inn" is included in several different of those cheap suspense/horror movie multi-packs, so keep an eye out for it. I think it's worth seeing, but it's a seriously flawed movie that you shouldn't go of your way to get, or pay full price for as a stand-alone DVD.
