Underlying tensions permeate the air of Beckworth Manor where twelve people have gathered on Halloween night each prepared to tell an unusual or macabre story, or in the case of the visiting medium, conduct a seance. The 13th Guest is a delicious blend of horror and dark humour that will take you into the realm of the supernatural where creatures hide in wait for mortals who dare to trespass. 


 Is the 13th guest human or a spirit come back from the grave? Derek Beckworth has no idea how his world is going to be turned upside-down when his mistress and his wife spend an evening in the same room. Throw into the mix a beautiful actress, a psychic, a retired Colonel, an artist, a young lawyer and a couple of strangers and the resulting cocktail will keep you entertained into the dark hours of the night.
