To celebrate the digital download release of The Axe Murders of Villisca, available now, we are offering you the chance to win a pair of tickets to attend an overnight ghost hunt inside one of Britain’s most haunted buildings with Haunted Happenings These locations include haunted castles, mansions, houses, tunnels and pubs – all with a sinister atmosphere and ghostly activity that will send shivers down your spine. Carry out ghost hunting experiments including vigils and séances as well as table tipping, glass moving and for those brave enough, the infamous Ouija Board working alongside the Haunted Happenings Ghost Hunting Team. This prize excludes the two-night weekend ghost hunts and European Ghost Tours. We have 1 pair of tickets to giveaway to the lucky winner.

Intrigued by the real-life mystery that surrounds a 'Murder House' in the town of Villisca, a group of friends set out to find the truth themselves.

After travelling to the scene of the crime, Caleb (Robert Adamson, Princess Protection Program, Hollywood Heights) Denny (Jarrett Sleeper, Stranger Than Fiction, The Fourth Door) and Jess (Alex Frnka, The Inbetweeners, Unanswered Prayers) take a guided tour that follows the final steps of the parents and four children that were brutally murdered over a hundred years prior. Dissatisfied with their findings, the group decide to return, after dark, to see if they can find the rumoured spirits that live within the walls. However, on their return, they quickly regret their decision and soon find out that the past is not dead and buried, but angry and ready for revenge... Will the group of friends be able to escape the nightmare house that they are trapped in, or will they too be destined to haunt the walls, waiting for their next victims?
