Hotel Arthritis (2012)


Somebody is killing old people. The weapon of choice: a secret. They are being offed by a masked killer who stalks the halls of the small retirement community in which they live. The story opens with a terrifying murder, creating space on the waiting list for Rose to move in. Upon Rose’s arrival, she is taken on a tour of the grounds by the quirky, offbeat manager: Dale. The odd and brightly colored characters continue to pop up as Fanny, her Jewish gossiping neighbor, introduces Rose to “the gang.” The routine of daily life is all stirred up at the moment. People are disappearing, chaos is erupting, there’s talk of a ghost, and to top things off, there’s an STD outbreak! As terror rises throughout the building, the fear of who’s next and who the killer may be, continues to grow. We find ourselves in the game of “Whodunit?” Is it Desperella: the ground’s custodial manager? Is it Kitty: the sexy activities director? Or Zeke: her punk rock boyfriend? Maybe it’s one of the elder folks suffering from dementia or seeking some sort of revenge… Full of laughs and full of scares – you’ll be on the edge of your seat from the moment you enter the world of Lake View Retirement Home: The place where people come to live… until they die!
