Alternate Versions

The 2004 DVD R1 release finds the movie running longer than any other copy but suffers from a minute of faulty audio (over a murder sequence) and two scenes featuring Rosalba Neri have been presented in their tamer 'clothed' takes, while the rest of the film's racy scenes are taken from the 'unclothed' variants. This DVD also includes some soft core inserts. The old US Gorgon video tapes have the unclothed Neri footage missing from the DVD. The new R2 DVD is missing the greenhouse seduction. See more »

Murder and Sex at a Mental Hospital for Women
15 March 2000 | by MADMANMARZSee all my reviews

While not as violent as other Italian Giallo/slasher movies of the 70's, Slaughter Hotel is worth a look. The movie centers around a series of murders at a mental hospital for women. We learn all about the patients sexual desires before they are killed off with mediaevall weapons. Plenty of nudity and a pretty bloody ending won't disappoint those who like this kind of entertainment either. A pretty decent cast and good photography and sets also help a great deal. Overall, this is a solid movie.
