A middle-aged woman, traumatized from the death of her adulterous lover, moves into a room at a New Orleans boarding house where the blind landlord becomes suspicious to her activities of continuing her affair with her dead lover.
Based on the Ed Gein case, a deranged rural farmer becomes a grave robber and murderer after the death of his possessive mother, whose corpse he keeps (among others) as his companion in a decaying farmhouse.
'Nightmare Hotel', 'It Happened at Nightmare Inn' or 'A Candle for the Devil' - the film is known by all three of these titles. I am not sure which one is the cut version but I have seen the film under the names 'A Candle for the Devil' and 'It Happened at Nightmare Inn' both version are good.
This one does have some creepy moments, plenty enough blood, some sadistic and perverted scenes. These two sisters running this hotel is enough to make you think twice before staying in one (similar to the way the film Psycho plays with your mind concerning Hotels/Motels).
I highly recommend this film for anyone that enjoys the older horror-thrillers - it's well worth your time watching.
