Waiting for minimum critic reviews


A demonic entity will return at Midnight on All Hallows Eve to claim the lives of a child from each family. A young woman scoffs at the legend and invokes the monster's rage. She must face the truth, that he is real, and stand up to him alone to save her village.

Luwynda is the only person brave enough to laugh in the face of the legendary monster who arrives to collect kids instead of candy one Halloween night. Defying prophecy, the brash girl finds herself confronting Horrendus in a hopeless effort to thwart his wicked toll. She knows a thing or two about bullies. But can she end the curse or is her village damned?
