Based On: 
Stephen King's entire body of work
Stephen King spoof Finding themselves trapped in a hotel where they are the only guests, two couples must fight for their life as they attempt to escape an insane caretaker.

Shane and Brian, both in their mid-30s, have taken their respective girlfriends, Kimona and Francine (both mid-30s) to the Motown Inn, a quaint Inn on top of a mountain for a romantic weekend away.
The Inn is closing down for winter, which is why the men got a good deal as they are both very cheap.
The only official members of staff are the care-taker Jack Schmidt, and his assistant Tony. There are however many other guests, ghosts, ghouls and goblins in the building, that nobody is entirely certain of.
The four guests meet up with Dustin, a flamboyant man in his 50s, in an attempt to figure out what is going on, but they soon discover the extent of Jack's dementia, as he chases after them with a bomb.

This spoofs most of Stephen King's adaptations, although as a huge fan of King I've also referenced things that happen in the novels/short stories that didn't make it to screen, although I feel this is still funny even if you aren't familiar with the original source material.
