Our Take:

My daughter takes after her mom, she just loves a good scare. I was very fortunate to be able to check out The Shout Factory’s new dvd’s    R.L. Stine's The Haunting Hour: The Series Volumes 5 & 6  My daughter and I had a nice mommy and daughter movie night. We bought some candy and popped some popcorn shut off the lights and began the scare fest! Now if some of you are not aware of R.L. Stine’s The Haunting Hour:

The Series, it is kid friendly scary.. it can get a little scary but it is in no way terrifying like adult horror films can be.  My daughter and I enjoys the two dvd volume 5 and volume 6. Each dvd has 5 episodes. We especially loved Swarmin' Norman from volume 5. Norman, a bug-loving, bullied boy discovers that he has the power to control insects, and uses his newfound power to get back at his tormentors. What would it be like to have a brother who loved bugs as much as Norman?? Well scary and cool of course!  My daughter is not a fan of bugs at all so this episode really creped her out, but it was still cool to watch.   

Our favorite from volume 6 was Mascot this episode was scary. Willie and Drake hate their school mascot, Big Yellow, and decide to replace him with something more conventional (like a gray wolf). But after the gray wolf mascot disappears, Willie and Drake must break into the school after hours to find him -- and soon discover the secret behind Big Yellow.  Yello’s secret was scary I can see why this can be a scary show. I loved the “A Look Behind the Screams” featurette, it was fun to see how the shows were made a great extra. But overall we really loved these dvds and I would recommend them.

The dvd’s arrive on 9/3/13 and retail for only $15.00 each. They are affordable and fun for the kids. If you have a special little Valentine this would make a wonderful valentine’s day surprise for that special someone.  These movies are creepy but not horrifying. I would still recommend these shows for ages 8 and up, any younger I think it would be a little to creepy for them, and I would not want the little ones to have nightmares.

Buy it:

These dvds will be available on 2/5/13 you can purchase them on Amazon
