To celebrate Halloween, Lee (Lee Mack) and Lucy (Sally Bretton) decide to take their children trick-or-treating, but things take a turn for the worse when Lee loses his phone on the doorstep of a creepy Victorian house. Upon returning to retrieve it, he discovers the building holds secrets that would have been better left alone.
