Crystal, a young widow, owner of a small costume hire business, has asked her sister Abigail, who has some psychic powers, to try to contact her dear departed Alan, a gangster who was shot by the police in a bungled jewelry heist. Crystal wants to know that Alan is okay, and they also want to ask him where he hid the diamonds that were never recovered from the robbery.

 

Marilyn, a gangster’s girlfriend, overhears the plan and alerts the gang boss, Fonso the Fence. Fonso of course doesn’t believe that it can be done, but just to make sure, he threatens the girls with strong arm tactics and advises them to abandon the idea.

 

Stan, landlord of the costume shop doesn’t believe in ghosts, spooks or anything to do with Halloween. Lilly, mother of the two girls, tries to warn him that strange things are about to happen. When the girls accidentally conjure up Al Capone and a real Witch, things get a little complicated.

 

 Mario, Alan’s accomplice and Alan arrive on the scene vowing revenge on Fonso for double crossing them.
