| Murder at Moorstones Manor
A parody of Agatha Christie. A wealthy, eccentric family of looney tunes. A big mansion, a servant and people dying.

Car obsessed Hugo is visiting Moorstones Manor for his father's birthday. Father is obsessed with war stories and thrashing people. Over the course of dinner several people drop dead, brother Charles is the likely suspect. He is forever holding a gun that seems to go off and is keen on having the will read.

Murder at Moorstones Manor gets farcical and ever so absurd as it goes along. The cast takes it ever so seriously which makes it deliciously fun.


Release Date:
