Hubie Halloween plot
For many years, local man Hubie Dubois has tirelessly spent Halloween ensuring that the people of his small hometown are safe and happy.
However, his efforts are largely mocked, to such an extent that many of the residents actually go out of their way to wind him up on the annual holiday.
But on one fateful year, Hubie discovers real monsters causing havoc on Halloween, but to his frustration none of the townsfolk believe him.
As a result, it falls on him to become a hero and save the town from a mysterious supernatural threat.
