It’s Halloween, your favorite night of the year.

You have just turned 12 and have finally been allowed a night out in town, to go trick-or-treating with friends. But, in the rush of the festivities, you lose them and now have to find your way home alone.

It’s midnight, the streets empty. You feel exhausted after hours of fruitless searching. In front of you rises the cathedral, dark and imposing, while chilly whispers brush past your ear. 

Can you trust supernatural forces to guide you home?
