They have already escaped from their cells and killed several guards, and the Joker tells them that they have to wait until midnight for the guard change if they want the outer doors of the asylum to be open when they leave.

Cast of Characters

Synopsis: On Halloween night, a group of teenagers decide to imitate Scarecrow's M.O., creating their own fear toxin and putting it in the candy that they give to trick or treaters. After a young boy eats a piece of their candy, he hallucinates violently and is taken to the local hospital in a near comatose state. Zatanna, who is performing a magic show in the hospital's Children's Ward cures the child, and in a rage visits all of the effects of the fear drug instead on the offending teenagers at their party. The party erupts with violence as the teens try to fight off their personal demons, and when the police burst in to stop it and calm down the party they arrest the teens for their "stash of illicit narcotics." After the trial, where the offenders are found guilty, Zatanna is seen continuing to torment them with their personal fears even as they lie in their hospital beds.

Synopsis: A group of 6 werewolf vigilantes (The Watchdogs), able to transform at will, are stalking Gotham City, hunting down rogue werewolf criminals, eating them alive, and pinning their human wanted posters on their corpses with silver pins. By the time the bodies are found, they have usually reverted back to human form. Robin (Tim Drake) is investigating the murders, despite a lack of cooperation from the Detective on the case, who assume the killings as another case of scum killing other scum. Eventually, Robin finds The Watchdogs closing in on a rapist, and tries to fight them off. He is able to beat two of them, but is quickly pinned down by their leader. He is very confused as to why he keeps on hearing the wolves talk, and eventually arrives at the conclusion that he has been fighting werewolves. He convinces them to let him take the rapist into custody, and the wolves stalk off. As Robin is helping force the rapist into a police car, he warns the Detective that the man is a werewolf, which the Detective scoffs at, and tells Robin he's "been reading too many comic books." As the car drives away, it is revealed that the Detective was actually the leader of The Watchdogs, and he kills the rapist himself.

It is revealed that their father, Donald Morgan the sailor, had been seduced by a Kelpie while at sea one year and had been left with the three infant girls, as Kelpies produce overnight. Despite their hypnotic hold on him, Aquaman punches through the floor and breaks into an underground well that he had already known was there. Inside are hundreds of tiny skeletons, from the babies the girls had borne over the years with their suitors.

Although the boy admits that he wasn't attacked by one, he insists on their way out that his dad has seen a Manticore. Passing a field as they walk, they see a pile of what looks like human remains. The boy again insists that it must've been a Manticore attack, but Clark deduces that the Skull is in fact from their high school biology classroom, and the rest of it is cow remains. Naturally, the whole group is fed up with the boy. He ditches them in the field to go pranking on his own, calling them a bunch of nerds. After Clark, Lana and Pete leave, the boy is attacked by an actual Manticore. He screams for help, and is heard, but the three assume it's just another dumb prank. The boy is presumably killed.

The Pumpkin Sinister

Cast of Characters

Synopsis: In a pumpkin field, two middle-aged men, clearly a pastiche of Charlie Brown and Linus are attempting to perform a bizarre ritual. They have just sacrificed one of their dog's (what appears to be Snoopy), and are talking about revenge against the man who humiliated one of them, and continuously mocked the other one for spending his Halloween's sitting in a pumpkin patch. Finally, they raise their giant monster from the ground, a pumpkin-headed creature called "The Pumpkin Sinister," who is apparently bound to obey their every command. They command it to kill their tormentor, Daniel Cassidy (The Blue Devil). The monster finds him, and nearly kills Blue Devil before he is able to get hold of his trident. A trident blast, combined with a destructive spell from Enchantress, is able to blow up The Pumpkin Sinister's head, spattering Pumpkin goop everywhere. Enchantress finds the two men from before lurking in the nearby brush, who Blue Devil names as Harley and Dennis, asking them what the whole thing was about. Harley angrily accuses Blue Devil of stealing his true love, the Red-Headed Girl, who based on a story Blue Devil told earlier appears to have been his first kiss. Blue Devil pushes the enraged man down, and walks off with Enchantress.

Sometimes They Come Back

While stalking off, Croc is hit by a massive amount of indigestion, and throws up. Resurrection Man begins to rematerialize, and fights Croc in his unrefined state, where he can still shift however he wants to. Resurrection Man actually eats Croc at one point, although Croc is able to escape. He runs to an isolated Gas Station, rushes straight into the gas tanks and blows the entire place up. News reports say that after this he is finally apprehended, and authorities have stated to their confusion that he was found not only burned, but also partially digested. Resurrection Man, after watching this report on the news from a bar, tells the bartender he has to be going. When the man asks him about the food he has just ordered, Resurrection Man cryptically says "Don't Worry. I'll be coming back."
