Hotel Inferno (2013) – By Baron Craze

Director Giulio De Santi, known for his thrilling gross theatrics, presents his film Hotel Inferno, filmed in a first person perspective, which follows a narrative storyline and yet feels strangely familiar.

Southern horror, especially when dealing in the subgenre of ‘redneck horror,’  finds itself with wickedly fun cinematic rides, and most definitely when involving finger chewing zombies, splatter fried barbecues and sweet home ghastly love bites, and that all comes from director Steven Goldmann’s nasty blood-slick film. Timothy Dolan, screenwriter from this nutty and yet creative…
