The Canterville Ghost

The Canterville Ghost

Shh! Terror, horror and a howling howl.


The ancient Canterville mansion is cursed beyond the grave. Poor Lord Canterville has finally found buyers from the United States who will buy his castle, and the local ghost is already getting excited about its new victims.

But hey, the ghost has no idea that the family of American capitalists have no fear at all. The dad is a global metal star who bites the heads of bats and howls like Banshee, the mom is a beast of horror parameters and their emo daughter is more depressed than alone howl at the moon. We will soon understand that the toughest fight will not take place between the ghost and the new owners, but within the family itself, and not only the ancient Canterville mansion will be at stake, but also the metal legacy of the entire famous American family.

Can they pass through cynicism and greed and break the old curse? Or will they succumb to hostility, low instincts, and virulent bat diseases?

The whole family will enjoy the modern dancing of the original Oscar Wilde story. The younger ones will be pleasantly afraid, the older ones will be given space to finally relax and laugh.
