When billionaire playboy Fredrick Loren's so-called beloved wife, who in truth has as much disdain for her husband as he does her, requests that he throw a haunted house ghost party for five guests, he happily obliges.

Seven people in the house, a ghost for each of them. What brings these guests to the house? The lure of $100,000 dollars in cash.

All they have to do is survive the night.

Tickets can be purchased online or 30 minutes before showtime at the box office. Seating is first-come, first-served.
