Little shop of HORRORS
David’s STORE IS UNDER SIEGE WHEN Jacob’s VICIOUS FRIENDS ROB IT, LEAVING POLLARD’S LIFE IN JEOPARDY AND Dan SUBJECTED TO A TERROR CAMPAIGN!
Worried about a teenage Jacob’s welfare, David is quick to banish his adoptive son’s troublemaking friends Josh and Jamie from the shop when they show up unannounced, and is grateful when customer Dan (Liam Fox) backs him up. However, both are unaware that the boys have stolen a copy of Tracy’s erotic novel and are taunting Jacob (JoeWarren Plant) with his stepmother’s racy literary efforts. Pushing Jacob to lose his temper, Josh and Jamie shove him in a bin near the shop before donning balaclavas and bursting inside with baseball bats to force a trembling Pollard (Chris Chittell) to empty the cash register!
Unaware that Dan is cowering in the shadows paralysed with fear, the teens force Pollard to open the safe. Instead, Pollard bravely pushes one of the boys, only to be beaten with the bat! During the scuffle, Pollard unmasks Josh and Dan sees his face as he and Jamie escape! Rushing to Pollard’s aid, Dan calls an ambulance when he slumps to the floor against the shop counter.
With Pollard treated and rushed to hospital, Dan’s guilt at not being able to help him is forgotten when Josh and Jamie threaten him not to reveal their identities to the police. Poor Dan is conflicted as he’s pressured from all sides with the teens slashing his campervan tyres, defacing his house with graffiti and menacing his daughter Amelia, before holding Dan at knifepoint! He frets that if he isn’t honest with the police, his and Pollard’s lives won’t be worth living.
