Summary (IBList user synopsis):

Following a routine feud, a married couple decides to drive down the Prentiss Road, where they drove on the night of their elopement. On their drive they come across a gimicky haunted house and decide to take the tour. Bloch livens a formulaic plot with a light tone and a unique twist.
