Just as the clock strikes midnight and Halloween transitions into All Hallow's Day, a man enjoying the post-Halloween quiet in solitude on his front step beholds a most curious sight: a shrouded skeleton dragging a coffin down the street. The dead, the forgotten, have risen with the demand that something be done about the decrepit state of their neglected graveyard.
