THE HAUNTED HOTEL is an independently-produced anthology film of ghost stories tied together by one historic location.
Eight tales of ghostly encounters through the decades – by turns spooky, comic, heartfelt and horrifying – manifest amid the ruins of a once grand English hotel. With a cast & crew of over 100, The Haunted Hotel drew filmmakers and creatives from all over East Anglia to the Great White Horse Hotel in Ipswich to create a portmanteau feature film with a truly independent spirit (no pun intended).
A once-grand hotel mentioned by Charles Dickens in 'The Pickwick Papers', the now-abandoned building provided the blank and dilapidated canvas for 8 original tales from local writers who responded to production company FILM Suffolk's callout for ghost story scripts. With plots set across 8 different eras spanning over 150 years, the production design and costuming challenge of bringing The Haunted Hotel to life was immense.
