In the fall of 1969, three brothers, Adam, Carl and Mark, venture out on Halloween night in what would be their last time trick-or-treating together. On the most sacred of all nights, these brothers will try almost anything in their relentless pursuit to acquire as much candy as they can during the Super Bowl of sugar bliss, Halloween. The oldest brother (Adam) creates a plan of attack that will allow them to retrieve the maximum amount of candy in the shortest period of time. Even though it’s a Friday night their father has set a 10 o’clock curfew which must be followed. To breach the curfew could result in all candy being confiscated and weeks of sugar withdrawal. On this Halloween night, the brothers encounter a few sweet old ladies and a grumpy old man that not only looks creepy, but also happens to live right next to the Cemetery.
And if that isn’t scary enough they also encounter the only man more frightening than the Grim Reaper himself on Halloween – the dentist, who is giving out floss and lecturing kids about the dangers of sugar and tooth decay. Adam decides the last house they will visit is the one house the youngest brother, Mark, has been dreading all night, The Haunted House. Mark is convinced the house is not only haunted, but that there is someone watching him from inside each time he passes by on his way home from school alone. What they see and hear at the haunted house is something that most adults can no longer see. That is, the unadulterated wonder of youth, the power of imagination and the unbreakable bond between brothers that no ghost or goblin can ever take away.
