What's the Mystery Here?
Victor the Vampire has assembled a strange group of dead and undead friends. Tonight they're going to someone else's halloween party. With Victor are:-
A poltergeist named Patti, a recent and reluctant member of the undead.
Winnie, a 17th century witch.
The rather slow Zoe, a zombie.
The improbably named Malcolm, an Ancient Egyptian mummy.
Gillian, the ghost.
The very posh Bella, a Bride of Frankenstein.
William the werewolf.
A dead body and hair-raising revelations spoil the party, and it is down to Detective Inspector De’Ath (and the audience) to solve the crime...
