  3. A girl who died in a car accident seven years ago crawls out of her grave with no knowledge of her life before.
  4. An employee at an office party vows revenge against a fellow employee, dressed as a vampire, for stealing his girlfriend.
  5. A witch curses a man to relive his death on Halloween night over and over again until he gives her what she wants.
  6. A hideous crow follows a lonely girl home from school, cawing the secrets of her classmates. It gives her a brilliant idea…
  7. A man wakes up in a hospital after an accident that left him blind. When he overhears the nurses’ plot to murder him, he plans a daring escape.
  8. You turn eighteen on Halloween and receive a knock on your door. The creepy stranger on the other side claims you are the Chosen One.
  9. You wake up in the body of a stranger and discover you have twenty-four hours to find a way back to yours, or end up switched forever.
  10. A boy accidentally discovers an abandoned house in the woods while running from bullies. Inside, he finds the diary of a long-dead witch that, when read, brings her back to life.
