Set in a Florida cornfield on Halloween Night, Orange Orbs follows two teenagers who find a baby abandoned in a pumpkin. As they try to return the child to its rightful guardian, they encounter two spectral figures and become entangled in a feud that’s older and bloodier than the fields themselves. Part southern gothic horror story and part coming-of-age tale, Orange Orbs examines how quickly terrifying events can force adolescents into adulthood.
