The European version of the *Haunted Mansion* ...
The most significant difference between the american mansions and the manor is the dramatic soundtrack, rescored by renowned composer John Debney.

The story tells of a bride, whose financé was killed by the Phantom. We are led thru the haunted house where beauty once lived. While passing the rooms and hallways we are surrounded by the melodramatic score of the all known "GrimGrinningGhosts" melody.
Reminded of the wedding that never was we are experiencing the dramatic story of love, retribution and death.
