Blood & Gourd #3: Children of the Vine, rolls right back into the Cucurbita chaos! A handful of survivors, including Kitty and Mason, find temporary respite in the corn maze, but will they find a way out before The Gourdfather and his minions make pumpkin gelato out of their brains? Calvin and Vern make a gruesome discovery, little Sasha finds what’s lurking in the greenhouse basement, and Mister Pleasant demonstrates how evil can choke the roots of any family tree.
It’s Devil’s Night in Olympia, WA – and out at Henderson Farms, the festivities are reaching a crescendo. Young and old have gathered to pick their own pumpkin, drink hot apple cider, and partake in the usual pumpkin farm fare. However, something has awakened from deep within the fertile soil. After years of abuse and humiliation, the pumpkins are ready…to pick US! You can beg! You can plead! You can scream! But these hell’s lanterns are lit only with a burning desire to: Watch. You. Die!
