A HIGH CONCEPT supernatural comedy set in a Ghost Hotel where the dead go on holiday in the living; the only problem is, once THE DEAD check in, they won’t CHECK OUT.

It came about after I sent a copy of my NFTS graduation film, X-MASS, a black comedy about a family who accidentally bring their dead uncle back to life as a zombie one Christmas; then, ‘cause it’s Christmas and he is family, they wind up inviting their crumbling relative to Christmas dinner.

The film, written and directed by the wonderful SCOTT FLOCKHART, was nominated for a Royal Television Society Award, won the audience award at Dinard International Film Festival, and screened all around the world.

I sent it to, LARRY WILSON who wrote and produced BEETLEJUICE, THE LITTLE VAMPIRE, wrote THE ADDAMS FAMILY and who, as a development executive, discovered Tim Burton, and put James Cameron on ALIENS.

 

Larry's the nicest guy in the world and LOVED X-MASS.

 

We met, got drunk, I pitched him GHOST HOTEL, and he LOVED that, too.

WHERE DO THE DEAD
