Angelo, Nick, and Carter are best friends who love monsters and Halloween. This Halloween is different though; at the last minute, Nick’s great-aunt passes away and Nick must go with his parents to the funeral in Louisiana. While in Louisiana, Nick finds an amulet that is cursed and decides to bring it home. Once at home, Nick notices many changes: he begins to reek of a horrible smell, he cannot feel pain, and suddenly he starts to lose appendages. He is becoming a zombie! With the help of Angelo and Carter, the three boys solve the mystery of the amulet by traveling to an undead world to free other zombies and turn Nick back into a human.
