In December 1936, a Broadway star admired for his performances as Sherlock Holmes has cast members to his country home for a weekend when the festivities in his isolated house of tricks and mirrors quickly turn dangerous.

Ollie brought his mother back to life and is now determined to make the perfect woman out of random doll parts to stave off his loneliness.

And Jackson can’t stop his feet from dancing until he finds his high school Prom date and kisses her. Too bad her husband is a notorious mob boss.
