Four high school friends reunite after sixteen years. A late October nor' Easter dubbed, The Halloween Gale, rumbles into town, plunging New York City into total darkness. The wicked weather and the blackout promise to make the couple's Co-Op City soirée, a night they'll remember, for as long as they-can-live. Little do they know; the raging storm is the least of their worries.Though their memories have faded over the years, they soon remember just how mismatched this unlikely quartet was in high school, and still are. They decide to venture out into the storm on a Halloween lark, and a seemingly innocuous Uber ride from the city to the infamous Buckout Road in Westchester turns out to be a big mistake. Unknowingly, their Uber driver is pitting them against each other, and their friendships rapidly deteriorate. When it becomes each man and woman for themselves, they all regret their decision to leave the 24th-floor apartment. The wicked storm intensifies, but the real danger to their lives comes from their driver, Asmodeus, who is actually a demon sent from Hell.Asmodeus' arrival is not at all random in fact, precisely planned. A one hundred fifty-year-old curse thought to have been vanquished, reemerges with the tempest. This time, it returns with a vengeance and a target victim that it must possess. Little does one of the four know that they are the last living descendant of Isaac Van Wart Buckhout, hanged in 1872 for the brutal New Year's Day murder of his wife, a neighbor, and his son.The Uber driver from Hell has his evil work cut out for him. His intended victim is far from the pushover Isaac was. And, what's more-Az soon learns that a spirit-force from another realm is protecting the target host. Will the evil curse succeed and be resurrected? Will the wicked anathema successfully destroy its final victim and claim their soul, before returning to the depths of Hell? In the end-will the last one standing have what it takes to survive; the Sleepy Hollow Massacre?

Scary horror novel? Hell Yes! Asmodeus, the Uber driver from Hell, is a character perfectly tailored for Woody Harrelson! I only hope the movie adaptation does the book justice!
