No one in Willow Street pays it any notice, not the disgruntled Campbell family next door, not Alice Cowley and her suicidal daughter, or Mr. and Mrs. Markham down the road. Not even Darryl, the loner at number seventy, who is abnormal himself, thinks much about it. It is just the old Kemper House, forgotten and abandoned. Until it makes itself known. When the stench of death wafts from Kemper House through Willow Street, and comes to the attention of recent resident and newspaper reporter, Ben Traynor, it starts a chain of horrors that brings Kemper House's curse into their own homes and leads others direct to its door. Kemper House not only haunts its neighbours, it infects them with an evil that traverses time and reality itself.
The Last Night of October
Seventy-year-old Gerald Forsyth dreads Halloween. Every year, on October 31st, a lone child has knocked on his door -- a nightmarish reminder of a tragedy from Gerald's past. Each Halloween, Gerald has been able to keep his door locked and the monstrous memory at bay, but now the ravages of emphysema have left him a disgruntled and feeble-minded old man. When a new hospice nurse named Kelli arrives unexpectedly to replace his regular nurse on Halloween night, Gerald is caught unawares. Before he can warn her, Kelli is inviting the threat into his home. The horrors that unfold will be no trick, and the only treat the child will accept is the old man's soul. Before the night ends, Gerald will have no choice but to bring his dark secret into the light.
