Summary
Side A. What's the matter with Helen? Two middle-aged women abandon the American heartland and head West after their sons are convicted of a notorious murder. Their idyllic new life begins to crack. It isn't tinsel that's beneath Tinseltown's surface-it's terror. -- Side B. Whoever slew Auntie Roo? A retelling of the old tale of Hansel and Gretel set in England in the 1920's. To the children and staff at the orphanage, Auntie Roo is a kindly American widow who gives them a lavish Christmas party each year in her mansion, Forrest Grange. In reality, she is a severely disturbed woman, who keeps the mummified remains of her little daughter in a nursery in the attic
