Synopsis

After attending a fancy dress party, the bickering Wishbone family get cursed by an evil witch named Baba Yaga. The curse results in them taking on the personality and characteristics of their fancy dress costumes: father Frank becomes Frankenstein’s monster, daughter Fay transforms into an Egyptian mummy, son Max turns into a werewolf, and mother Emma becomes a vampire. To lift the curse and return to human form they must show they can happily get along but Dracula, who is infatuated with Emma, has other ideas.
