Hotel Of Fear
14 November 2014 | by AaronCapenBannerSee all my reviews

Patricia Neal stars as Ellen Alexander, a married woman staying with her husband Harry at a lush Casino hotel. Trouble starts one morning when she wakes up to find her husband gone, along with their luggage, having said nothing to her and leaving no note behind. Confused and worried, Ellen investigates by repeatedly asking the staff, who claim to not know anything in particular other that he left. Unsatisfied, she eventually contacts a higher hotel official named Brett(played by Craig Stevens) who ultimately tells her the shocking truth of things... Neal is excellent here, playing her role to the hilt, and though at times melodramatic, it contains a fantastic twist ending you may not see coming. Sadly the last episode hosted by Sebastian Cabot, with the "Ghost Story" title. (A most unfortunate mistake!)
