This movie is no doubt one of the best mystery/horror movies ever made. It is a real television rarity and I appreciated the fact that it wasn't just about blood and gore. I recently viewed it with my aunt, and now she talks about it all of the time.
'Nightmare on the 13th Floor' revolves around Elaine Kalisher, a strong, determined young woman with hopes for her new article on the elegant Wessex Hotel. She is sent by her boss to write the article for a popular travel magazine, but then her article takes on a new subject...
While riding the service elevator, she discovers a floor in between 12 and 14. It is illuminated by gas lamps. As she watches in terror, a man is murdered. But before she can do anything, he is dragged away, blood being stained into the carpet.
However, after telling the hotel doctor about the murder, he doesn't believe her because there is no thirteenth floor. But Elaine must find out if she hallucinated it or what. So, with the help of arrogant Sargent Mathan, she and him go in search of the axe murderer and a thirteenth floor.
Delightfully creepy and even scary at times, Nightmare on the 13th floor is one you must view...or else.
