Danny Walker has moved into a small town known as Walker Falls with his father, James, who hopes to start a business on chocolate. The town however doesn't seem to like Halloween as they haven't celebrated it in quite some time. With the exception of James's grandfather, Uncle Fred, an eccentric sort who likes doing things that most adults would consider childish (Playing with toys, dressing up in silly outfits, etc). Danny soon learns why the people shun Halloween due to a "curse" by someone named Curtis Danko, an artist outcast who liked to paint monsters. Curtis mysteriously died when he went into the kiln while making a sculpture for a contest and it turned on with him inside. Mike Kankel, one of the people who ''really'' opposes Halloween, apparently saw the sculpture himself and was blinded by it. The town's been in fear of Halloween since.

* ItsAllAboutMe: [[spoiler:Mike would rather ruin Halloween for Blake Falls, damage the reputation of a kind and respected town figure, and let the town fall into the hands of zombies than admit that he let an innocent student die in a kiln and that he didn't get a football-based amusement park.]]
