In what’s probably going to be our favorite news story of the week, it has been reported that police were summoned to The George Washington Hotel (the site of many real life deaths and tragedies) to investigate what was believed to be the “most gruesome crime scene” Police Chief J.R. Blyth had ever seen in his thirty-five years on the force! There was just one problem …
Blyth and his men were alerted to the scene when Washington firefighters responding to a fire at the Pennsylvania hotel stumbled upon what they thought was the scene of a massacre on the fourth floor of the building.
However, after the investigation had begun, it was soon realized that Room 405 in the hotel had been set up to resemble the site of a grisly murder to be used in the horror flick The New Terminal Hotel! Director B.C. Furtney had left his “set” untouched in case of a potential re-shoot.
“I was mad at first because we declared it a crime scene. I had to call my detectives out — that’s eight hours of overtime,” said Blythe in an interview with The Pittsburgh Channel. Click below for video, the whole story and more.
Writer/director B.C. Furtney’s suspense thriller stars Ezra Buzzington, Stephen Geoffreys, Tiffany Shepis, Laura Leigh, and Corey Haim. It tells of a man (Geoffreys) driven insane by the Hollywood system and details the depths of depravity he sinks to because of it. Ezra portrays Spitz, a wheelchair-bound child pornographer who is a resident of the titular hotel and friend of Geoffreys’ character.
