When rule breaking during one of their investigations lands the detectives in “service detention,” the four friends find themselves lugging pumpkins off a foreclosed pumpkin patch. To thank them for their service, Sheriff Obie allows each Creep to take home a pumpkin. Once carved, the jack-o-lanterns come to life --- and attack everyone within reach!
