SUMMARY:  Max's parents tell him his ancestors were hunters... and he should tell them if he ever hears them calling to him. Max walks to school with his best friend, Maxine.  They eat Skittles and talk about life. And following them is a Monster. He wants Max, but Maxine tells him no. After school, the Monster pounces and takes Max. Maxine tries to give chase, but is cut off by a passing train. She goes home, grabs a pair of hedge clippers as a weapon, and rushes out again to go find Max, to the total lack of concern of her apathetic parents. She finds a trail of Skittles...

Max (Ari Radousky) and his parents (Bruno Oliver & Jaime Andrews). 'Your ancestors were hunters, max - just one tiny fingerhold away from animals.  They call to you, don't they?' Max and Maxine (Natasha Norman).  'You're the only person that doesn't make me feel alone.' Something's following them... Look over there! Maxine tells the Monster (C.M. Gonzalez) he can't come to school with them. The Monster follows them to school anyway. The Monster grabs Max! Maxine prepares for a journey. Maxine's apathetic parents. She finds a trail of Skittles...


Max and Maxine encounter a Monster while walking to school and playing a guessing game.


The Monster takes Max, and Maxine reacts.
Her parents don't care, so she's outta there.

SUMMARY:  The police are called in to find the missing Max, as we learn that Max and Maxine's parents are having affairs with each other. Maxine's parents aren't concerned that she's missing, too - "she did 4H." Meanwhile, Maxine finds herself followed by another monster, and encounters a woman who believes herself to have been cursed to hideousness by her sister. She breaks the "curse" with a mirror, angering the sister, who curses Maxine with loneliness. Elsewhere, Max meets his true kidnapper, the dreaded Hroth, who tells Max that he's destined to rule mankind. Hroth sends the Monster to keep Maxine away from Max. Elsewhere, Max and Maxine's teacher, Mr. Teller, joins Officer Hyde in investigating the tunnels under an old grocery store.

Mr. Teller (Jay Garrett) and Officer Hyde (Monica Greene) comfort Max's parents. Another Monster (Gregory Guy Gorden) is following Maxine. A woman (Alyssa Preston) believes she's been cursed to be hideous. Heralding the dreaded Hroth (Darret Sanders).


Maxine encounters a pair of sisters who teach her a thing or
two about curses and loneliness... but perhaps not enough.
