Controversial “Mansion of Blood” is a hilarious, campy “who-done-it” horror comedy-film set in an abandoned mansion built in 1912 and renovated by eccentric millionaire Mason Murphy who invites everyone in the small town of River Ridge to a wild lunar eclipse viewing party to celebrate his new home. When a guest who is a witch loses control of a spell she conjured up to speak with her deceased boyfriend, all hell breaks loose – literally. Horror fans are in for a treat when anything becomes possible and the guests’ nightmares become reality when each is killed in every way imaginable – by accident, murder, zombie, werewolf, ghost, little people, monster, demon, evil creature and other classic horror genre figures. The film’s sequel, Elusive Entertainment’s Revenge of the Mayan Curse is currently in pre-production.
