Siblings Scott, Dave and Allie are disappointed that their rural town has seemingly decided to boycott Halloween after the tragic disappearance of local kids back in 2011. Fourteen-year-old Scott is especially disappointed because since his mom has forbidden the three kids to be out after dark, his plans of "pranking like a bad boy" with his friends at night without adult supervision are ruined, and he'll have to go to a geeky youth Halloween party in the school cafeteria. After their mom leaves for an overnight shift at the hospital, the three kids are left home alone. Since Dave is upset about not having a large enough pumpkin to carve, Scott suggests that they become the town rebels by stealing pumpkins from an eccentric old farmer who knows more about Halloween tricks than they realize.

Nobody goes out, nobody decorates! We have to trick-or-treat at school? It's BEYOND lame! Halloween's supposed to be a wild night where anything can happen!
