The Perils and Dangers of This Night
By: Stephen Gregory
A throwback to classic psychological horror stories, this tale of revenge and retribution is set in the bleak winter isolation of Foxwood Manor, a boys’ English prep school in the woodlands of Dorset. The stage is set when arrogant former pupil Martin Price inexplicably shows up with his girlfriend, Sophie, joining the headmaster, his wife, and abandoned student Alan Scott as the only residents of Foxwood on a frosty Christmas Eve. As the snow falls, a web of half-truths and innuendoes emerges, and things evolve into a bizarre game of hide-and-seek through the halls and dormitories of the old manor. As events progress throughout the night, shocking revelations emerge, culminating in a stunning conclusion on Christmas morning.
