It’s almost Halloween, so for the last Month of Horrible Movies post, I had to pick this ghost movie set on Halloween, Tower of Terror. Based loosely on the Disney World ride, the movie is about a hotel that’s haunted by the ghosts of a group of people that died in an elevator crash while on their way to a Halloween party on the top floor. In the present day, a cheesey tabloid reporter, played by Steve Guttenberg, goes to the hotel with his niece, played by Kirsten Dunst, to take some fake ghost photos for a story on the haunted hotel, and they’re surprised to find that the ghosts are real. The reporter and his niece begin to investigate the story behind the ghosts and try to find a way to put the ghosts at peace.
This is one of those movies that I watched as a kid and remembered as being really creepy and great. When I was putting together my list of ghost movies to weed down for this series, I had this one on the list and started to wonder if it was a fun as I remembered. I looked around a bit to see if it was on Netflix or Hulu, and I eventually found the whole movie on YouTube. It wasn’t nearly as creepy as I remembered; it was so cute! I really enjoyed revisiting this one.
