Van is an eminent heart surgeon who has just purchased Spooky Hollow Manor. Underneath his charismatic personality, lies a deep, dark secret of which very few are aware.

Kat Lady

murder mystery party

Van’s wife, Kat Lady, is a purr-fectly stunning vamp who revels in her position as head of the Manor. She is a sanctimonious fraud who will charm and compliment you to your face, and turn around and knife you in the back.

Izzy was Mummy’s dear husband, whose death was declared accidental. He likes to haunt the Manor with his untimely apparitions and stir up a little trouble between the inhabitants.

Bea has always had total control over the mansion, and delivers ominous warnings if things don’t go her way. She has her eye on the butler, but he will have nothing to do with Bea.

Franken Farter

Franken Farter is renowned for his investigations of ghosts and other supernatural spirits that visit our environment. He has a severe flatulence problem which makes close contact with him very uncomfortable.

Kerry, the wealthy mortician who lives next door, could be described as mostly grim, punctual and always looking for new business.

Game Reviews

  • We really enjoyed "Spooky Hollow Horror." It was a fun Halloween themed game. Very easy to play and the personalities in this game are a riot. It's very easy to plan this party. A creepy buffet worked out great for us. And decorating is simple. Just decorate as you would for any Halloween event. The costumes are easy to create. As with many of the games by this author, make sure your players are very outgoing and like to role play their characters. This makes the game so much more fun. The character background gives you tips on how to act like your character and if your guests let loose and go for it, it makes for a laugh out loud night. The "vampire" discussing bloody operations to everyone he chats with or the "ghost" who enjoys scaring the "over-frightened" guest. It worked out great. Also, if the host prepares ahead of time, like instructed to, you can create a crime scene and make things seem more "real" for your guests. Also, this game is very light-hearted and it's not for puzzle solvers or people looking for an in-depth mystery. The game is more fun to simply be played and enjoy. There is a crime and the clues are there, but make the solving of the crime only part of the fun. There's also additional ideas for extra games to help keep the evening moving along. My guests had a great time, loved the characters and we just had a great Halloween night of laughs.

  • 1st time hosting a "Murder Mystery Party" and we loved it. It was so much fun! I have to admit I was a little nervous but the way the game was laid out and all the party host guide it all came off with out a hitch. All the guest love it as well and everyone is talking about which "Murder Mystery" we are going to do next year. This will definitely be a first of many more to come. Thank you!!!
