As a kid, I enjoyed watching spooky shows like Are You Afraid of the Dark and R.L Stine’s Goosebumps as well as reading the books! I was thrilled to find out about R.L Stines The Haunting Hour hitting DVD during this month. After getting my hands on a copy and viewing, I’ll have to admit that this show falls nothing short of offering quality thrills and chills for kids and those who are kids at heart.
I can’t peg an age specific to how old a child should be to view these though I heard it was generally geared to kids ages 10 and up. Every kid is different. I did watch the a couple of episodes with my daughter and she didn’t seem freaked out at all by it. She’s watched Dr. Who with us and I would deem that it’s a bit more scary and intense at times. I’ll let you the parent decide if it’s okay or not for your kids and would recommend watching it first to see.
Each of the DVDs, The Haunting Hour Volume 1 & 2 are approximately 140 minutes long offering five episodes each. There are also bonus features which include “A Look Behind the Screams” and original promos for the show that originally aired on it’s TV home, The Hub.
These would be something to totally nab to add to your collection, especially with Halloween right around the corner! I found the stories exciting and the acting top notch! Overall, either volume would be great for a overnight sleep over party or just a family movie night! I totally recommend them if you like spooky stories!
