Hound’s Hotel: A Hairy Murderer On The Loose

A combination of wacky characters, slapstick comedy and musical farce, Hound’s Hotel is a horror comedy which harks back to the classic British 70’s sitcom, an adult pantomime which will grab your attention from the first line and hold you by the neck until the final bow.


“Le Château Du Chien is the most luxurious hotel in all of the Swiss Alps. Manned by a staff of the finest workers in the hospitality industry, its patrons can enjoy refined food and unparalleled comfort. But one night, a quiet, unassuming gentleman appears, without a reservation, seeking a room. This sets off a chain of events which leads to the appearance of the greatest detective in the world, a spinning class gone awry and a killing spree which may, or may not, claim the lives of all the residents. All the while the full moon shines brightly overhead…”
