the loss of their promising careers, Bob and Debbie Stevens embark upon
opening a bed and breakfast. Their savings depleted and desperate for
cash, Bob reluctantly allows Debbie's meddling grandparents to co-sign a
three million dollar loan. He purchases a burned down property on
twenty five acres in scenic rural southern Michigan and build Murcat
Rumors of curses and ghosts haunt the
property’s reputation. But the history of two previous houses burning to
the ground killing nineteen people do not deter Bob and Debbie from
their dream: raising a family while earning a living with one of the few
bed and breakfasts in the entire region.
During construction, the Stevens adopt
thirteen kittens found in the rubble of the property. The cats are
possessed by disembodied souls from daughters of witches put to death
during the Salem Witch Trials. Each cat possesses a unique ability, and
together they bring terror and death to the guests of Murcat Manor.
With each killing bringing more
cancellations, Bob has to get creative. Burdened with massive debt he
devises inventive ways to allure new guests in order to keep up the
payments. But the malevolent felines have five previous lives spanning
four centuries of deviltry and murdering practice to draw on. Their vast
experience now enhanced with the use of modern technology, they devise
cagey ways to keep killing, including leaving evidence at the scene for
detectives to believe Bob and Debbie are the perpetrators.
