As a child, Monica’s grandmother warned her of the Hallow Man. Every Halloween he demands a sacrifice, sometimes big, sometimes small. One night he comes for Monica and she begs him to pass her by. He does, but extracting a terrible price. Now the Hallow Man is coming again and this time Monica can’t imagine what she’ll have to pay.
Even at ten, Anna thought herself braver than the other kids. Even during the run up to Halloween.
But when Marshall, the school’s pushy bully, challenges her to visit the old Hawthorn manner, how can she say no? So up the stairs she goes. Ignoring the chill in the air. The warning from her friend. The threat of the ghosts or monsters that might lurk behind the old door.
Anna must brave the darkness inside and come back with proof. Or not come back at all.
A creepy horror story of a brave girl and her willingness to pay The Visit. Beware of the old house on the street.
