The movie begins with a group of five young boys who call themselves the East Side Kids. They are given tickets to a Halloween festival at a nearby amusement park by a local charitable organization. However, the boys end up getting kicked off the bus and decide to walk to the destination. Along the way, they meet a strange man named Nardo (Bela Lugosi), who they suspect is a ghost. Despite their initial apprehensions, they end up becoming friends with him.
