Teenager Adam Freeman and his dad move to a new town, Springville, which Adam quickly learns the locals refer to as "Spooksville." Just as the evening curfew hits and everybody else scrambles for home from the basketball court, Adam meets Sally Wilcox and Watch, a couple geeky local kids who tell him a little more about the town. That night, as Adam tries to sleep, he sees a strange spider-like critter trying to haul away his childhood teddy bear, Sheriff Quick Paws. Adam calls Sally, who directs him to Watch's house where the three carefully examine the teddy bear and find a shiny stone inside it. When Adam bikes home, he is struck by a car then wakes up inside the vast estate of the notorious Ann Templeton (whom Sally thinks is a witch). After he and Ann talk, Adam tries to make his way home once again, this time being menaced by screeching creatures.
