Around 2007, famed horror director Mallard Hitchcock began trying to film The Screaming Duck III in the Hotel. His endless perfectionism and frighteningly realistic special effects drove away all crew, and, eventually, even the hotel staff, while Hitchcock stayed behind in the lonely and abandoned hotel, stubbornly trying to finish the movie all by himself.
A decade later, he was still working on it when Donald Duck and his nephews, Huey, Dewey and Louie stayed at the hotel, Donald having gotten a job as the new caretaker. With the help of Huey, Dewey and Louie, Mallard managed to film the third movie using an unsuspecting Donald as the victim. After Mallard offered Donald a permanent job, however, he flew the hotel with his nephews.
