Witch runs a hotel/guesthouse and kills her guests

I think this movie came out in the 80s but it might have been the late 70s. A man checkes into a hotel run by a witch. He starts reading a book about all the bad things that happened at the hotel in the past. When the book catches up to the present it bursts into flames. The witch kills a black family (the mother has a big afro) and the man reads about it in the book while she is doing it. The man eventually drowns the witch but at the end of the movie a hand comes out of the water and grabs him. It's not Superstition (1982)
