The cover illustration features three masks on three tombstones.
It's Halloween and Monica Anderson is out trick-or-treating with her younger brother. They knock on the door of an old, creepy house and are met by a strange woman who pleads for their help. Every year she must battle for the control of five sacred masks with the evil Dr. Screem. These artifacts have the power to manipulate the world around them. Monica doesn't want to help at first but then Screem bursts in and steals the masks. This sets her and her brother off on a Halloween mission that will change their lives forever!

- This is the only Hall Of Horrors book to be marked as "Special Edition".
- When the book was first released, Dr. Screem was thought to be the main antagonist, but it turned out it was Belladonna.
- Like the masks in The Haunted Mask and The Haunted Mask II, the five masks would not come off and can only be removed by Dr. Screem and Belladonna.
