Huh, did you see "The Haunted Mask II"? I'm pretty sure that that is the one my cousin owns. With the girl Carly Beth and it being attached to her skin....

I used to own both Haunted Mask 1 and 2 on videotape. Haunted Mask 2 has one of the guys who used to make fun of Carly Beth in the first book with another creepy mask stuck to HIS face.

Yes, the TV Novels are different than the real books. I thought they were rather pointless, since there was already a book of the story out, why write another, but they were shorter than the real ones. I used to own that one about the librarian who was a monster... can't remember the name.

I'd rather watch a Fulci or Argento movie.

Me too, but not at age 8. Wonderful series IMO when I was younger. Right up there with "Nightmare Ned" and "Tales from the cryptkeeper"

Anyone here been watching R.L. Stine's new TV series?

It is called The Haunting Hour and it airs Saturday nights at 8PM ET on The HUB.

It's not great, but for those of us who grew up with Are You Afraid Of The Dark or Goosebumps, it is a nice trip down memory lane.

Haven't watched his new show, but I laughed my ass off reading what I wrote in this thread when I was 15. Good stuff.

oh man, I had a TON of Goosebumps books as a kid. My favorites were the Night of the Living Dummy trilogy. Good creepy fun. The TV show was weak though, they could've at least made them hour long episodes.

I also was a rabid fan of "Are You Afraid of the Dark?" I'm still clamoring for an official DVD release of the seasons. I remember that show so well. By far the most memorable for me was "The Tale of Laughing in the Dark" and "The Tale of the Lonely Ghost"

You know, the one with the clown that died in the funhouse fire who always had the cigar burning, and the girl who got trapped in that room and was scratching "HELP ME" on the walls?

Awesome stuff back in the day

Actually every season of Are You Afraid of the Dark has been officially released, although only in Canada I believe and they are all OOP now. I have the first, second and fourth season of the seven produced.

I started watching the first season in October. It is pretty cheesy and definitely aimed at children, but I did have fun mostly due to nostalgia but also because the shows have great atmosphere, and I like the campfire tale aspect of each story. I always thought this show was better then Goosebumps personally. Some of the stories are actually pretty good but you can tell the age demographic and money available had an effect on the show.

As for those two stories you mentioned, they are two of the shows that I have watched so far as they are earlier episodes, titled The Tale of the Lonely Ghost and The Tale of Laughing in the Dark.

My favourite episode has always been The Tale of the Twisted Claw. It takes place on Halloween and is a twist on "The Monkey's Paw," about two boys who scare an old lady on Devil's Night and receive the claw as a treat from her on Halloween, of course granting their wishes but with a terrifying price.

Here's some pics of the sets.

Are You Afraid Of The Dark was amazing, and way better than Goosebumps. The episodes mentioned were some of the first few episodes.

Some of my favorites were:
Nightly Neighbors
The Prom Queen
Midnight Madness
Frozen Ghost
Old Man Corcoran
Watcher's Woods
The Dream Girl
The Silent Servant
The Ghastly Grinner
Dead Man's Float
The Night Shift

I own the first 4 seasons on DVD from here in the UK. You can get them pretty cheap. They never released 5-7 over here on DVD for some reason. I am going to have to get season 5, 6 and 7 from USA when I have the cash.
