When a pair of newly weds check-in to a hotel, famous for staging whodunnit theatre games, they discover a crazed killer on the loose who may not want them to check-out!

A “Vincent Thompson” FILM
WRITTEN BY Vincent Thompson

Charlie and Sarah Miller have only been married for two months, they are still happily in the honeymoon phase and trying to start a family. One day, Charlie wins an all expenses paid weekend trip to Grave Manor; a popular tourist hotel, known for staging theatrical whodunnit mystery games with live actors.

Penny Paddington, the eccentric middle-aged proprietor, inherited the business from her late grandfather. The renowned hotel was a 19th century asylum, revamped by grandpa Paddington in the 1950's after a decade of being condemned. Despite the need to update the tired looking establishment, Penny is determined to keep her family legacy going at any cost.

Charlie and Sarah check-in to Grave Manor, where the lines between theatrics and reality become increasingly blurred. But when staff and guests start turning up dead, the newly weds are forced to work out the real life mystery and expose the killer... before it's too late!
