THE GATES OF HELL ARE ABOUT TO OPEN. MIND THE GAP.
Young Samuel Johnson and his dachshund Boswell are trying to show initiative by trick-or-treating a full three days before Hallowe'en. Which is how they come to witness strange goings-on at 666 Crowley Avenue.
The Abernathys don't mean any harm by their flirtation with Satanism. But it just happens to coincide with a malfunction in the Large Hadron Collider that creates a hole in the universe, a hole through which can be glimpsed a pair of enormous gates.
The gates to Hell. And there are some pretty terrifying beings just itching to get out...
For Cameron and Alistair
