West Baden Hotel Setting Adds Eerie Beauty to Film

There’s certainly something in the water at the West Baden Springs Hotel. Director Paul Shoulberg’s new movie, a supernatural thriller, So Cold the River takes place in the small town of French Lick, Indiana, where magic water and an enormous hotel draw people in to stay. Starring Bethany Joy Lenz (Dexter, One Tree Hill,) Katie Sarife (Annabelle Comes Home,) and Andrew J. West (the walking dead,) the movie delivers on chills from the story to the setting.

‘So Cold the River’ is based on the book of the same name by Michael Koryta

Koryta, who hails from Indiana and authored So Cold the River, weaves a supernatural mystery set in the famous West Baden Hotel. In the novel, a disgraced filmmaker named Eric Shaw is commissioned to create a character profile on a man named Campbell Bradford. Campbell, evil as they come, murdered the hotel’s original owner in front of the man’s son because he refused to sell Campbell the hotel. Campbell and the boy then disappeared, never to be seen again.
