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 Danny'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.

* DeadlyPrank: [[spoiler: The real truth behind the kiln incident was that Curtis had ran into the kiln to hide from Mike and his fellow bullies. They locked him inside, intending to release him later. But the janitor happened to come back and accidently turned the kiln on, wearing headphones so he couldn't hear anything, burning Curtis alive.]]
