Scary Place, Stupid Movie [10 May 2006|06:37am]
[ mood | tired ]

If you have never seen "Death Tunnel", do not waste your time. Like so many failed attempts at horror, this travesty is nothing more than a handful of girls who trade looks for talent, some hastily put together CG, screeching flashy images and a script that belongs not on the big screen, but in a big toilet.

The one and only thing the movie had going for it was that it took place inside Waverly Hills Sanatorium in Louisville, Kentucky. I had the pleasure of visiting the hospital on Halloween two years ago, and it was stunningly, deliciously creepy. In an attempt to raise money to preserve the sanatorium (and drum up interest in that pathetic film), the main building played host to a large and relatively entertaining haunted house. It was nothing spectacular, aside from the almost tangible aura of decay and despair that loomed over the entire building, but then I am rather hard to please when it comes to haunted houses. When we bought our tickets, they told us of a second haunted house that was beneath the hospital. Several of our party refused to enter the morgue, but this was by far the better of the two attractions, and the closest I have ever been to being truly frightened in a haunted house attraction. I won't give anything away, but I highly recommend the Waverly Hills Sanatorium if you are looking for a real fright this Halloween.
