Earl and Duke are just passing through. Two creatures of the night not looking to bother anyone or to stick around long. But when Loretta, current owner of Gil's All Night Diner offers them $100 to take care of her zombie problem, it looks like they might have found a short-term job and home. Given that Duke is a werewolf and Earl is a vampire, this line of work is right up their alley.

But nightly attacks of the roaming dead are just the start. These events are just the tip of the iceberg as they discover that it appears that someone is looking to drive Loretta from the diner in order to bring about the End of the World. And is more than willing to create a lot of chaos in order to do it. As our heroes dig deeper into mystery and the supernatural events surrounding the diner, they discover that the diner's long-dead original owner, Gil Wilson, was trying to bring about the
apocalypse through dark magic when he accidentally killed himself. But that blood sacrifice has awakened the unnatural. And the Elder Gods are hungry, still waiting for their delayed release into our dimension. The Diner itself is the portal and the gate is unlocked. The dead have not been resting quietly either as Gil himself has recruited new living minions and has been manipulating events from the other side to finish the job he started.
As events lead to a final showdown as the doorway, finally opens and our heroes have no choice but to stand and fight. With the help of an amorous ghost from the graveyard next door, nad the local sheriff, both Duke and Earl are able to help Loretta defeat Gil's unnatural plans for a cataclysm and seal the doorway forever.
