My Take on the DVD
Not only have the R.L. Stine books been good, but in the Haunting Hour series, the author's stories come to life on the big screen. My daughter is addicted to this series, and I have to say that in watching the episodes with her, they are fun and a bit chilling and gruesome at times, but fun none-the-less. These two new season collections were great and added some great new episodes to the mix. My personal favorites were Pumpkinhead and Brush With Madness, but all were fun to watch. You get young actors for the most part taking part in the making of these and they do a good job at embodying their characters and keeping the shows suspenseful and a bit scary too. All-in-all if you are a R.L. Stein fan or if you simply like getting a bit scared, or at least like watching your kids get scared, this is the television series for you!
