Lonnie Wayne Burke can be a vicious criminal but lacks the vision to make it big like Ted Bundy or the Son of Sam. Enter Manny, a talent agent who sees Lonnie's potential and takes him under his wing. Together they craft the most devious serial murderer America has ever seen: The Halloween Killer. Complete with a costume and the all important catch phrase, Lonnie soon becomes the media darling he has dreamt he could be. Appearing on Talk shows, The Miss America Pageant and The Billboard Singles charts, The Halloween Killer can't be stopped---or can he?
