The U.S DVD (released by Cheezy Flicks and titled "It Happened at Nightmare Inn") runs 67 minutes and features a heavily edited print which removes all shots of nudity, stabbings and dead bodies, and the entire relationship between Veronica and Luis. The UK Odeon DVD (released as "A Candle For The Devil") runs 83 minutes and is the full uncut version. See more »
'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.
