A word to the wise – just avoid spooky abandoned farmhouses altogether.
But ESPECIALLY avoid them on Halloween. No good can come from exploring them. None. Just forget it. If, however, you decide to forge ahead and explore that creepy, undoubtedly haunted place, and you stumble across some kind of ancient looking artifact, here’s a pro tip – Leave. It. Alone. Just walk away. Forget you saw it. Exit scene left and, I dunno, go soap someone’s windows or TP their house. Something productive. Something decidedly other than meddle with weird, old artifacts.
These would be lessons too late in the coming for the folks in today’s release Shadows: Price for Our Sins. Against what should be any rational person’s better judgment, young, naive Dylan and her equally naive student friends do precisely all the aforementioned things one should never do in any freaky, spectrally-infused abode. I mean, haven’t these kids ever seen a horror movie? Jeez.
Anyway. Needless to say, happiness and joy does not henceforth abound once they find the abandoned, exceedingly spooky Stone Farm and then decide to mess with said artifact, thereby unwittingly (of course) opening a portal to some kind of hell dimension, releasing the prize possession of Lord of Darkness, and generally-not-very-swell-chap, Samhain; the souls of the Stone family themselves. Buffy and the Scooby Gang Dylan and co. are not. Samhain takes none-too-kindly to losing these souls and as recompense claims the souls of the meddling kids. Dylan, proving a bit more wily than her friends, manages to escape the demon’s grasp. Now it’s up to you and Dylan to gain the trust of the most assuredly post-hell-dimension-stress-disorder inflicted Stone family’s spirits and save Dylan’s pals before it’s too late and their souls are lost forever. Or at least until another group of puerile teens stumble across the accursed Stone farmhouse!
