Description

The City of the Dead (Horror Hotel) (1960) [Enhanced] - Public Domain Universe - John Moxey Nan Barlow (Venetia Stevenson), a student of the occult, is encouraged by her history professor, Driscoll (Christopher Lee), to visit the decaying village of Whitewood, Massachusetts. Mrs. Newless (Patricia Jessel), proprietress of the Ravens Inn, is in reality Elizabeth Selwyn, a witch who was burned at the stake in 1692 but restored to life through a pact with the Devil. When Nan discovers the witch and her coven, including Professor Driscoll, performing human sacrifices on Candlemas Eve, she is killed as a sacrifice. Nan's brother Richard (Dennis Lotis) and her boyfriend, Bill Maitland (Tom Naylor), become worried about her absence and drive to Whitewood, arriving as Patricia Russell (Betta St. John), granddaughter of the blind minister of Whitewood, is to be sacrificed. Bill, although fatally wounded by the witches, manages to throw the shadow of a cross over them, destroying them all, as Richard escapes with Patricia. Note: known as Horror Hotel in the United States. Note: some minor enhancement work was done to improve the quality of the old source picture and soundtrack. Nothing was added or removed.

YouTube is our platform of choice; a great platform because it is well-known by the general public, easy to use and open to discussion (at least, PDU videos are open to video responses and comments, always). Discussion is important because the works in these videos are often not well-known or could have been forgotten by time. Their free status does allow easy distribution though, which they should benefit from. These videos are free because the work you see in them never were copyrighted or they have lost their copyright status for various reasons (usually because of their age), so you can do what you want with them, even use them commercially (when something truly is in the public domain) without even needing to refer back here (since PDU too does...
