Spooky Halloween movie

Sharon scurries up the stone steps to the DeVeccio mansion to watch the Halloween movie on Chiller Theater. A hunter’s moon hangs low in the dark desert sky. In the distance, a wolf howls, its eerie wail echoing through the night. The wind whistles through the Ponderosa pines, sounding like the wise old whispers of the Paiute Indians buried thousands of feet below in the windblown sand. Reaching the door, she yanks on the hangman’s noose. The dome in the bell tower rattles the mansion.

Oliver answers, holding a candlestick. You rang?

As they walk through the long corridor to the parlor, ghostly footsteps echoing in their wake, organ music grinds off the wall. Candles flicker in the parlor, illuminating the swords above the bar. Hot buttered popcorn and chilled  chardonnay are laid out on the coffin table. Masks from Uncle Carlow’s chamber line the wall, a werewolf with glowing red eyes, the bloody head of Frankenstein and the Evil Jester with a demented smile. Sharon takes a seat on the burgundy settee. When the raven clock announces the thirteenth hour, Oliver takes a sweeping bow.
Good Evening! On this ghoulish Saturday night on Hallow’s Eve it is my great pleasure to present
Produced by TRIAD PRODUCTIONS and written by SHARON ANN DONOVAN. Grab yourself a big tub of buttered popcorn and get ready to scream.

When the whispers in the night, the whispers of her lover, are the whispers of a killer, will Margot escape before she becomes the next victim?
Deep in the foothills of Red Rock Canyon, a serial killer stalks. He leaves his signature—a skull mask on the corpse. But when the homicide cop realizes the crimes are the reenactment of a case never solved ten years ago--all fingers point to Michael DeVeccio. And when Margot realizes she is married to the killer, her life becomes a living nightmare.
