Mumsy, Nanny, Sonny, and Girly

The family that plays together, slays together.

Things get creepy and kooky in this delirious lil’ slice of what-the-heck cinema.

A loose-knit “family” of four welcome new dudes to their crumbling mansion, then force them to play increasingly-dark games in a bid to stay alive, giggling all the way.

Director Freddie Francis, a two-time Oscar winner for cinematography, crafted a film which lingers in the back of the brain for days.
