The first episode is entitled "The Headless Ghost". Duane and Stephanie are frequent visitors to Hill House; an old mansion that is rumored to be haunted. During one of their visits, they stumble across the ghost of a young boy who lost his head. Now, he's come for one of theirs!
In episode 2, entitled "Awesome Ants", pals Dave and Ben decide to grow an ant farm for their science project. Ignoring the instructions not to overfeed the ants, the boys begin feeding them hot dogs and any other thing they can find. Soon, the ants are overrunning the house.
The third and final episode is entitled "Teacher's Pet". Becca is excited about going on an overnight camping trip with her science class. However, once at the campground, Becca discovers some really strange animals. It turns out that the camp science teacher is doing a little cross-breeding, and Becca is on the menu!
As with the other DVDs in the "Goosebumps" series, the episodes contained on this DVD are scary, but not so much as to give young kids nightmares. My three children, ages 10, 8, and 6, really enjoy watching this series. The stories are spooky and the kids really enjoy them.
I give this DVD my highest recommendation. The stories are scary, and children will surely enjoy watching them.
Stephanie and Duane love a good haunt, but they get more than they bargained for in The Headless Ghost when they enter into the Hill House!
Awesome Ants is one crazy story! Dave's science project is an ant farm. He orders a special kind of food for it that turns the ants into giants!
Becca's science class is going on a overnight nature adventure (What School Does This?), but she is in for a sssurprise!
These are three great episodes that your kids will love!
The worst thing about this DVD is the packaging. The DVD comes in the new "eco-friendly" (aka cheaper to manufacture) DVD case that have large wedges cut from the plastic, both behind the disc, and on the side where the liner notes go. Yes, it may be eco-friendly to use less plastic on the case, but it also leaves the disc inside much less protected from dust and scratches.
Instead of offering a cardboard slip case, the manufacturer went with a totally bizarre piece of cardstock pasted on top of the shrinkwrapping. First off, the image on the card is exactly the same as the one that's underneath, on the case, so there's really no reason for this. Second, once you remove the card from the shrinkwrap (it's attached with rubber cement), it doesn't even fit inside the case. You can wedge it inside the clear plastic piece on the outside of the DVD case....but once again - what's the point of this thing anyway? This is really the most absurd DVD packaging I've seen recently. Come on Scholastic, just give us a real slipcase next time.
As for the episodes themselves - we get three solid offerings this time. "Awesome Ants" was probably the best of the trio, with a really great twist ending that would be at home on the Twilight Zone (although the giant ant puppets used in this episode are about as convincing as the monsters in a Godzilla movie). "Teacher's Pet" is also a notable episode, because the lead actress, Michele Risi (playing the role of Becca), passed away shortly after filming.
Headless Ghost - wish this one showed a bit more of the gore factor but, still gave the kids goosebumps ;-)
Awesome Ants - my kids absolutely loved this one and is hands down their favorite Goosebumps episode. My 4 yr old still talks about it after 2 weeks.
Teacher's Pet - my oldest son already was afraid of the creepy crawling things and this stepped it up a notch - made my daughter leave the house (she told my fiancee - drive me somewhere, I want to go anywhere). I was laughing but, she was crying.
