An Unexpected Hiccup

Caught in a storm and miles from anywhere, Murdo decides to ask for the help of total strangers. But when he knocks on the door of a dark old house, the family inside seem to be expecting him. Whatever Murdo has stumbled upon, there’s no escaping it now. He steps into a long night of comic misunderstandings, sinister goings on and dangerous eccentricities.

Keep an eye on Kurt…Don’t worry about the noises in the cellar…And never ask Louisa why she’s crying…!
