The trailer for Netflix’ horror-comedy Hubie Halloween is out now.
The streaming giant shared the first official trailer on Thursday featuring Adam Sandler as Hubie DuBois, a Halloween-loving community volunteer living in Salem, Massachusetts.
Hubie Halloween follows the story of Hubie Dubois (Sandler) a good-natured but weird man who spends every Halloween making sure the residents of his hometown, celebrate the holiday safely, and play by the rules. But this year, an escaped criminal and a mysterious new neighbor have Hubie on high alert.
The problem is he’s something of a laughing stock across Salem to both adults and children alike. Hubie, kind of has a problem of crying wolf to the local police whenever he thinks something spooky is afoot.
The official synopsis for ‘Hubie Halloween’ reads, “Hubie Dubois (Adam Sandler) thanklessly spends every Halloween making sure the residents of his hometown, Salem, celebrate safely and play by the rules.
