Appetite

Appetite

Death. Lust. Revenge. Suicide. Sex. Murder. Mystery. Addiction. Seduction. - And that's just for starters. Appetite is a nightmarish thriller that is as hilarious as it is terrifying.

An old station hotel: you can sense the past, you dream the dreams of long gone guests and protect yourself from the future by never leaving your dreams or the hotel ...

The group of strangers play cards to see who will sleep in hotel room 207 - a room where no one has dared to sleep for 20 years. And in the process they learn too much about each other's dark secrets. As their lives tangle in paranoid deadlock, the only escape becomes murder.
