When an old man of the neighborhood, Walter Seznick (Gale Gordon), mysteriously goes missing, the suburbanites start to suspect the bizarre family. Armed with guns, pickaxes and binoculars, they decide to visit the creepy house to figure out the Klopeks' secrets. They will make a really shocking discovery...
