Delivering suspense, nervous giggles and captivating spooky family adventures, R.L. Stine’sThe Haunting Hour: The Series – Volume 1andVolume 2DVDs feature some of young Hollywood’s biggest names as guest stars, including Bailee Madison (Brothers, Just Go With It), Connor Price (The Dead Zone, Will & Dewitt) and Grayson Russell (Diary of a Wimpy KidandDiary of a Wimpy Kid: Rodrick Rules) to help coax you into keeping the nightlight burning bright.

My Opinion Only:
R. L. Stine’s skill in writing horror-fantasy made him the best-selling children’s author in history, no wonder his original series The Haunting won numerous nominations and awards for its high quality production, directing, editing, and storytelling. His dark plots and morality tales are good stories because his audience gets caught close up in the lore and the character. Everything seems believable and plausible (well most) until…an exchange, a demise, even an occasional happy ending (A Creature Was Stirring).

Final Thoughts:
Special recognition to young artists Jason Spevack for Ghostly Stare and Jessica Mc Leod and Bal Nagro for Alien Candy. Good casting demands talent, but in this series has no recurring roles. A different cast is in every episode. Bet that these young bright stars of today and tomorrow shine week after week. What an anthology thriller The Haunting Hour really is!
