Available from 19 October 2020, featuring a Limited Edition O-Card slipcase and Collector’s Booklet [First Print Run of 2000 copies ONLY].  High school underdog Hoax (Stephen Geoffreys - Fright Night) fills up the idle hours in his seedy little hometown fending off the local leather-jacketed thugs, avoiding his overbearing mother (Sandy Dennis) and dreaming of a date with trailer park temptress Suzie (Lezlie Deane), But his quietly desperate life takes a terrifying turn when his cousin introduces him to an unusual new hobby – phoning in for his “horrorscope”. Hoax is hooked up with a compellingly hideous demonic force that slowly begins to overtake his entire life and now there’s more than just a phone bill to pay for anyone who ever dared cross “the neighbourhood nerd”. Co-written by Brian Helgeland (L.A.
