5.0 out of 5 stars Five Episodes to Give You Goosebumps! September 6, 2012
Format:DVD
Do you remember the Goosebumps books and TV series from the 1990s from horror mastermind R.L. Stine? Well, his new series The Haunting Hour debuted in 2010 on The Hub cable channel based upon his The Haunting Hour book, a collection of short stories.

I've been a die-hard R.L. Stine fan since I was a kid, but I don't get The Hub channel, so I patiently waited for the DVDs to be released! The Haunting Hour follows the typical 22 minutes length per episode, but unlike the Goosebumps series, this series has a bigger budget and better acting. The special effects are much better this time around and the stories are much darker.

In the two-part premiere Really You, Lilly (played by Bailee Madison) is a spoiled girl, always getting what she wants from her parents, especially from her dear old dad. What she wants now is the Really You life-size doll, in which her parents give in and get it for her. Strange things begin happening and Lilly suspects her doll is responsible. Her mother starts acting strange and becomes obsessed with the doll. Lilly realizes that this doll may want to actually become her.

The Creature Was Stirring is set during Christmas and involves a family that is on the blink of destruction. The two older kids are greedy and are upset because they didn't get the right presents. Their parents are ready to divorce. Young Timmy sends a letter to Santa asking for help. Suddenly, a snow storm traps them inside the house and a strange gift is left for Timmy. The gift is a gremlin. The family must band together if they want to survive Christmas!

Will is bulled by two teenagers in The Dead Body, which makes the episode all too real. He meets a new student named Jake, who promises to help him get back at the bullies.

5.0 out of 5 stars Beyond GOOSEBUMPS September 23, 2012
Format:DVD
Inspired by a couple of short story collections (THE HAUNTING HOUR and NIGHTMARE HOUR) by R.L.Stine, THE HAUNTING HOUR: THE SERIES is similar to Stine's mid-1990's series, GOOSEBUMPS. However, THE HAUNTING HOUR is much darker in tone and content and the production values are a couple notches above those of GOOSEBUMPS. Volume 1 contains five episodes from the series. Each episode is about 22 minutes in length, including the show intro and the credits. The episodes are:

"Really You, Parts 1 & 2" - Lilly is a spoiled girl who has always gotten everything she wants and has her father wrapped around her finger. Her latest request and gift is a special life-sized "Really You" doll. The doll Lilly receives is named Lilly D. Lilly D looks like a giant plastic replica of Lilly herself. At first, Lilly fawns all over the doll. Her parents buy matching clothes for Lilly and Lilly D. Lilly's spoiled behavior worsens as she flaunts her new found "wealth" at her friends. But then, Lilly is informed that Lilly D doesn't like her and some strange shenanigans start to happen and Lilly is convinced that Lilly D is alive. Lilly gets in trouble and it becomes apparent that something strange is happening between Lilly and Lilly D.

"The Dead Body" - Will is constantly bullied by a couple of older kids in high school. Then he meets a new student named Jake who agrees to help Will get even with the bullies. In exchange, Will is supposed to help him when he needs it. Will agrees, but learns that Jake isn't exactly the person he appears to be.

"The Creature Was Stirring" - this episode first aired on Christmas Day (2010). It's set on Christmas. A young boy, Timmy, wrote Santa a letter and hopes that Santa will grant his request.

My eight-year-old daughter loves reading R.L. Stine's Goosebumps series and was excited to watch this show when she came across the DVD at the public library. This is Volume One of The Haunting Hour series and contains four episodes, one of which is shown in two parts:

Really You (Parts 1 and 2) - a spoiled young girl (portrayed by Bailee Madison) demands her father buy her a life-sized doll to be a companion/friend. When the doll arrives, the girl finds her life turned topsy turvy as the doll harbors an evil agenda that could place the girl's very life at stake.

The Dead Body - a teenager finds school life a living hell when he is the target of bullies. Then he meets a mysterious new kid who promises to get even with the bullies on his behalf. Little does the boy know that the new kid isn't what he appears to be and that payment for services rendered might be a little too costly!

A Creature Was Stirring - Timmy gets a Christmas present that turns out to be a gremlin like creature. Will this be the end of Timmy or could something good possibly come out of this?

Nightmare Inn - a teen girl and her mother move to an inn they recently purchased to start afresh after the devastating death of the girl's father. When she gets there, she encounters some strange people who appear to be harboring some dark secret. When she eventually uncovers this secret, she finds her life in danger. Will it be too late?

Each episode runs only about 22 minutes each. The total running time is about 2 hours. The bonus features are "A Look Behind the Screams" and original promos. I watched this with my daughter and found the episodes to be well-made and credibly acted and suited for a younger audience, possibly elementary level up to middle grade.

A little scary for younger kids (6-8) probably not as much for older children... (9-12) I enjoyed it myself - but I like scary shows!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Very Scary for Young Kids!
Not for young kids! My sons are 4 & 7 and they are still freaked out by the doll. I imagine it would be better for 10 year old and up.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great show but I wish all seasons were Prime
My daughter loves things she thinks are scary and this is just enough scary for her. This is right on par with "goosebumps" and "are you afraid of the dark."

2.0 out of 5 stars A little childish
It was a bit childish and the plot was hard to follow. It did make me laugh though. Thought Bailee Madison was ok.

My almost nine year old granddaughter and I watched this together. She has very little interest in television programs, but this series kept her amused.

4.0 out of 5 stars I really enjoyed the series
It liked all the stories, they were interesting and different. I recommend series to any that likes horror stories and looking for something more than zombies.
