How to Throw a Haunted House Party Alfred Hitchcock Style

Book a stay on the Alfred Hitchcock floor at Arthouse Hotel and have a scream this Halloween in Liverpool with all your friends.

Halloween is just around the corner so we’ve taken a look at how the master of macabre, Alfred Hitchcock, chose to celebrate his love of horror and haunting. The bash he threw for the Warner Brother top brass in March 1956 showed that Halloween must have surely been his favourite time of year.

Our Hitchcock movie-themed hotel rooms are dedicated to the great director and his work, to help our guests celebrate all things spooky in style.

Check out this amazing account of the spookiest party in town during 1956 at Alfred’s own horrifying New York Haunted House Party.

The perfect party location

In true Hitchcock fashion, it was all about location, location, location when it came to planning his grand New York Haunted House Party.

Hitchcock Haunted House Party search

He sent out his team, Young and Rubicam, to track down a Hitchcock appropriate venue to host his hotly anticipated house party.

  • The stipulation was that the venue should;
  • Be able to cater to a number of VIP guests
  • Have a glamorous yet chilling interior
  • And most importantly have its very own supernatural presence

The task at hand seemed daunting at first when the team first attempts to secure out a genuine haunted house in New York.

The Wine Cellars of Brooklyn Bridge

They came up trumps with Hitchcock’s first two criteria but were stumped time and time again when it came to finding a real live haunted house.

Luckily a tip came in that the wine cellars under the Brooklyn Bridge ticked all the boxes on Hitchcock’s list.

Together Young and Rubicam and an excited Mr Hitchcock took a tour of the cellars and discovered, at last, the ideal space in which to host Hitchcock’s epic Halloween bash.

Brooklyn Bridge Wine Cellars

The walls were dripping, dank and dark and even the whispers of the team members echoed around the cavernous space creating ghostly whispers.

Sadly a Hitch presented itself.

There was no plumbing throughout the cellars and Hitchcock’s most distinguished guests could not expect to go without washrooms for the entire shindig. Prices for temporary fixtures were assembled totalling $800.

The wine cellars were a no go and the search continued.

The Old Merchants House

The people of New York all began to get involved in the search and tips kept rolling in about supposedly haunted buildings that were ideal for Hitchcock’s house of horrors.

The Old Merchant House was scouted as another possible venue. The perfectly preserved period home was ideally spooky and was rumoured to have ghosts of its very own.

The Old Merchant House

source; NY Adventure Club

Those who inherited The Old Merchant House told stories of ghostly happenings. Convinced that nine members of the Treadwell family who lived and died on the property continued to haunt it they opened the home up as a museum.

Hitchcock, upon visiting the house was overjoyed with the preservation of the home and believed it would make a smashing venue for his VIP haunted house party.

The Old Merchant House 2

source: landmarkinteriorsAgain, it was not to be as the kin of the Treadwell family could not consider a party being held inside their historical landmark giving Hitchcock and his team a blunt no when the idea was suggested.

The search went on.

Today The Old Merchant House is still perfectly preserved and receives regular visitors with a keen interest in the history of the home and its haunting past.

Last resorts

Taking matters into his own hand Hitchcock reached out to the American Psychic Research Society who responded that New York had become too modern a city to host any sort of supernatural spirit.

Hitchcock then placed an advert in The Times real estate section asking for people to call in with any ideas. Young and Rubicam were bombarded with over 100 telephone calls a day but none of the leads could conjure evidence or even stories of ghostly presences in their proposed properties.

Hitchcock's The Times Real Estate Ad

source: Reddit

There were suggestions of homes in Jackson Heights with real graves in the garden, a place in Englewood for sale with reports of a poltergeist but Hitchcock preferred to stay in the city centre.

On Staten Island, there was an agent trying to rent his property to Hitchcock for $5000 because it had nightly spiritual torments which gave Hitchcock chills but not because of the ghosts.

The Winning Location

7 East 80th Street

source: LIFE

After his short but exhaustive search for the most haunted house in New York Hitchcock and his team settled on the towering townhouse on 7 East 80TH Street.

The abandoned cobweb-laden mansion was sans spirits but Hitchcock’s patience was spent and he settled for a venue that looked haunted but wasn’t.

This was no problem for the master of suspense and horror as he and his crew set to work stirring up the dusty corners of the extensive property and adding some eerie extra touches here and there.

Hitchcock placed coffin shaped bars around the home, and well placed hidden speakers provided spooky moans and groans of fictional ghoulies throughout the building.

Using the ancient furnishings to his benefit Hitchcock accentuated the decay of century-old paintings, elaborate antique chandeliers and thick dusty drapes. The perfect mood lighting was installed and Hitchcock’s haunted house party was finally taking shape.

The Monstrous Menu

A stickler for the finer details Hitchcock ensured that if he couldn’t frighten his guests with real ghosts he would try instead with his party menu.

Inside the carefully crafted Tombstone Shaped invitations guests received a copy of this cleverly conceived menu of the macabre;

Carte de Morte

Aperitifs

Morbid Morgue Mussels, Suicide Suzettes avec Crepe, Consommé de Cobra, Vicious-Soisse

Entree

Home-Fried Homicide, Ragout of Reptile, Charcoal-broiled Same-Witch Legs, Corpse Croquettes, Barbecued Banshee au Gratin, Opium Omelette en Brochette, Stuffed Stiffs with Hard Sauce, Gibbeted Giblets, Monster Thermidor, Tormented Tortillas, Ghoulish Goulash, Blind Bats en casserole

Dessert

Fromage d’Abbatoir, Python Pudding, Morphine Meringue Glace, Fresh cut Lady Fingers (in season)

The Liqueurs

 Bloody Marys, Anisette d’Arsenic, Hennessy’s Heroin, Dead Grand-dad, Formaldehyde Frappe

Guests came dressed to impress in all manners of upper-class attire, and photos show that the drinks were flowing as the spookfest played out.

7 East 80th Street Party cake - LIFE

source: LIFE

On top of all the extravagant food, there was also a detailed party cake made to resemble a church and graveyard, complete with inedible cobwebs draped across so that it almost looked a part of the house.

Not to leave things to chance Hitchcock utilised his movie know how to give his guests an extra fright in the night.

7 East 80th Street man in bed

source: LIFE

One of his cheeky tricks included a decrepit old man left in one of the upstairs bedrooms. Clever makeup and special effects made this character seem like he could have been left to pass away in the house and forgotten.

This was not the only haunting house party Hitchcock threw during his years as master of suspense. Other notorious party rumours circulate about the director hosting events in LA where guests were handed shovels and asked to exhume several buried skulls bureid around the property garden.

If we could attend any Halloween party we think Hitchcock’s soirées might have been the most terrifying ones of all time.

The Horrifying Hitchcock Floor

The perfect hotel for fans of classic horror films, at the Arthouse we have a whole floor dedicated to ‘The Master of Suspense’, Alfred Hitchcock.

From rooms focused around the infamous Suspicion to a stunning tribute to The Birds, you’re sure to have a frightful night.

Choose from eight Hitchcock themed rooms, sleeping between four and six guests, and get ready for an eerie Halloween night.

The Birds

the birds

One of our favourite rooms from the Hitchcock floor is our tribute to The Bird’s.

This dark and decadent room transports its visitors into the mind of one of the greatest filmmakers, with a horrifying mural from the film set on the ceiling.

A critically acclaimed thriller, Hitchcock’s The Bird’s is a suspense-filled masterpiece revolving around a love story between a stunning blonde starlet and a handsome heartthrob, until things take a terrifying turn for the worse.

Adapted from a 1952 short story written by Daphne du Maurier, Hitchcock masterfully plays on the human emotion of fear in this all time classic.

The Birds

Known for his devious methods whilst filming, during the filming of the attic scene he forced the leading actress to work for 5 days in an enclosed space using live birds instead of mechanical.

Even though his methods were almost maniacal, The Birds goes down in history as the greatest thriller/horror movie of all time.

One of Hitchcock’s most gripping horror films, the world of The Birds is the perfect place to spend All Hallows Eve.

Suspicion

Next up is undoubtedly one of Alfred Hitchcock’s best loved psychological thrillers, Suspicion.

A twisted and spooky tale of love and betrayal, this tense film follows the story of Johnnie Aygsgarth and Lina McLaidlaw’s, portrayed by the legendary Cary Grant and Joan Fontaine.

Suspicion

When handsome gambler Johnnie crosses paths with shy and bookish Lina, love blossoms and they quickly marry. However, it’s only after their honeymoon that the truth behind Johnnie’s façade begins to unravel and turn dark.

The plot twists and turns as Hitchcock builds the suspense until it is uncovered that Johnnie’s friend, Beaky, has been mysteriously murdered. Lina starts to question everything and has the suspicion that Johnnie is the murderer. Will she be next?

suspicion

From its impeccable casting to its chilling musical leitmotif, Suspicion is certainly a timeless masterpiece in cinema and the perfect backdrop to a spooky stay at Arthouse.

With dark and ghostly interiors and blood red bedding, this spine-tingling suite is sure to raise the hairs on the back of your neck.

Spellbound

Get enchanted by our mesmerising Spellbound room and come on a spooky journey to discover your psyche.

One of Alfred Hitchcock’s most psychological films, Spellbound delves into the mysterious world of psychoanalysis, a technique of bringing unconscious memories and thoughts to the surface as a therapeutic technique and treatment for some mental health issues.

Spellbound

Based on the thriller The House of Dr Edwardes, the predominantly black and white film invites us to Green Manors, a mental hospital in Vermont. Here, we meet Dr Constance Peterson, a cold and emotionless female psychoanalyst, and learn that the current director of the hospital, Dr Murchison, is being forced into retirement after taking a leave of absence for nervous exhaustion. His replacement comes in the form of Dr Anthony Edwardes, a very young and attractive man.

Dr Petersen grows suspicious of the impossibly young director and discovers a mystery that will take all her psychoanalysing skills to solve.

Spellbound

One of the film’s most mysterious scenes is famed surrealist artist Salvador Dali’s conception of the film’s key dream sequence. Hitchcock gave Dali free rein of the sequence, with only minimal plot pointers and the sequence ended up being 20 minutes long. It was eventually cut down to just two minutes, but it is still one of the most unique and unnerving sequences in cinema.

Spellbound is dark, mysterious and artistic, a true icon in the Hitchcock collection. Sleeping up to six people, invite all your Hitchcock aficionados to stay in the luxury Spellbound room in Arthouse Hotel for Halloween.

The Frightful Rocky Horror Show Room

Maybe less of a stereotypical horror film, the Rocky Horror Show room echoes the extravagance and darkness of the iconic movie.

A cult musical, comedy and horror classic, the film tells the story of a newly engaged couple whose car breaks down in a desolate area.

While in search of help, their journey takes an unforgettable turn when they stumble upon the weird and eerie castle of Dr Frank-N-Furter, an alien from planet Transsexual.

rocky horror show

When they enter the castle, they find it is full of strangers dressed in elaborate unearthly costumes and they are catapulted into a scary world of darkness.

The film is famous for having a loyal cult following with midnight showings becoming all the rage, avid fans would dress up as the spooky characters to celebrate their love for this truly unique classic.

Echoing the extravagance of the Rocky Horror Show, our fantastic themed room invites up to six guests to step into a time warp. This suite is perfect for booking group accommodation for Halloween in the city centre with family or friends.

Rocky Horror Show

The Spine-tingling Chicago Suite

The story of two women from the Jazz scene in prohibition-era Chicago, both accused of murder and awaiting trial on the infamous Murderess Row, Chicago is dark and brilliant classic.

Velma Kelly is a nightclub singer, accused of the murder of her cheating husband and sister. Velma is the unrivalled star of the cell block until Roxie Hart is arrested for the murder of her lover, a crime her husband Amos initially took the fall for.

chicago

Both women fight to be represented in court by Chicago’s slickest lawyer, Billy Flynn, conjuring up a media circus in the build up to their trials and singing and dancing their way to celebrity criminal status.

With plenty of jail scenes, shadows and murderous women, this film is perfect for celebrating Halloween with a bit of razzle dazzle.

The room sleeps up to six people, you and your friends are sure to fall in love with the black leather interiors and velvet features that take inspiration from the 1975 musical.

Enjoy the comfort of our luxury beds, kitchenette, large screen TV and a relaxing double Jacuzzi bath. You’ll never want to leave.

Chicago

The Eerie Phantom of the Opera Room

Last but certainly not least, is our decadent and mysterious Phantom of the Opera suite.

Based on the French novel Le Fantome de lOpera by Gaston Leroux, the Phantom of the Opera tells the story of a bitter and badly disfigured man, known as the Phantom, who lives in the sewers underneath the Paris Opera House and haunts anyone who enters.

phantom of the opera

He falls in love with the chorus opera singer and to get closer to her begins privately tutoring her. During these lessons he wears a long black cloak and mask to hide his scarred face.

The story was inspired by historical event at the Paris Opera during the 19th century, and the mythical tale of using a former ballet pupil’s skeleton in the 1841 production of Der Freischutz. Due to the story’s popularity, it was adapted into various film and stage adaptations, including the 1925 film.

Phantom

Hauntingly beautiful, the Phantom of the Opera has been deemed the greatest musical phenomenon of all time, offering stunning music and lyrics that has captured the hearts, minds and ears of international audiences.
