Norman is an outcast at school because the kids know that he supposedly talks to spirits, but finds a friend in Neil, a chubby kid with similar social standing. During practice for a school play, one meant to celebrate the historic founding of the town of Blithe Hollow, Massachusetts, Norman is struck with a vision of the town forefathers about to put a witch on trial. The witch's trial and the curse the witch supposedly put on the forefathers have become part of the town lore (there's even a statue of the witch in the center of town). It's something that's joked about around Halloween, but what Norman sees shows him that there is a very real threat – the ghost of the witch will return, and unleash untold horrors upon the town.
While Norman loves horror movies and frequently communicates with the deceased, this is something that's beyond his pay grade, and when a nutty relative blessed with similar extra-sensory powers comes to him with a similar warning, he becomes genuinely freaked. What if the witch does return? Will she unleash an army of the dead? And will Norman be up to the challenge and manage to avoid getting beaten up by the school bully ? The Playlist
