Join us for a nightmarish masquerade filled with apparitions, dark family secrets and dreadful deceit. Venice, Italy, the family patriarch William Cohen dies after a torturous sick bed and bequeaths the family castle to his estranged son David Cohen.
Upon occupation of the castle, the Cohen family is confronted by a multitude of strange and alarming paranormal activities. Unperturbed the family hosts a birthday masquerade in true Venetian style. As the masked guests sat down to dinner, the lights went out. David left to investigate, with his last words, “I will be right back!” echoing through the eerie corridors of the castle. However, he did not return.
The Cohen family desperately needs your help figuring out what happened to David by uncovering a murderous plot under the watchful gaze of a malevolent entity.
