Suave and attractive, quite disappointed but hardly beaten, he has returned to the home town where he grew up, where things went really crazy one Halloween night years ago--when the local late night Horrorshow was the prime focus of the Halloween insanity! When its insane host, Druzeppa, had performed weird witchy rituals between the films he showed . . . only moments before dying on the air!And now, hoping to use that past legend as a way to gather a crowd of viewers for his own late night Horrorshow that he hopes will become his launch into film and major TV roles at last, Jim breathes his plans into his old former friendship , who he makes a co-host and even drags in his new girlfriend Laurie and her pal, Steph, who Greg gladly gravitates to . . . And the night begins its bewitching and supernatural events during the increasingly bizarre intermissions of the Horrorshow and throughout the trick or treating in Twaintown, a once sleepy and very mid-western town . . . at least since the hysteriad of the last Horrorshow.That was the night Jims father died and his mom went crazy, when that Horrorshows host, Druzeppa, had burst out of the TV, attacking and raping her--STRAIGHT OUT OF THE TV!By the author of Shade, Dusk, Blind Hunger, Blood, Last Rites, Brain Fever, Blood Lust, Descent, and Boundaries.
