I have always watched scary movies, even when I was just a young girl. I also loved reading scary books when I was a child, so as you can imagine I really enjoyed the R.L. Stine series of books! If you are a child of the 90's then I know you have to remember the beloved children's series of haunting books that later on became a television series. They were written by the one and only R. L. Stine who many people refer to as the "Stephen King" of children's books.
When I was recently given an opportunity to review two of the first two volumes of R.L. Stine's The Haunting Hour series, of course I couldn't wait! Not only did I think it would make a great show for my son, but I was also anxious to watch a few episodes myself! I received both Volume 1 and Volume 2 and each one includes five haunting episodes. I watched a few of the episodes with my son and they really brought me back to my childhood. They are scary for children without being too scary, which is perfect for my son because he gets too scared when watching regular scary movies.
The first two episodes on the first series were my favorite! They were actually in two parts, part one and part two. The episodes were about a spoiled little girl who just had to have this certain special doll that was very expensive. The only problem was that the doll did not like her, and soon she would find out why!
