R.L. Stine's The Haunting Hour



Has your child discovered R.L. Stine's The Haunting Hour on Hub TV Network, which airs on Saturday evening at 5 & 5:30pm (ET) yet? R.L. Stine is the master of children's horror stories, I remember reading his first books back in the late 1980's, there is just something about a good horror story that draws people in and the fact that his books/films are geared towards kids--well older tweens and teens really--makes them unique even more so.
On September 4 2012, Shout! Factory has collaborated with The Hub TV Network, to release R.L. Stine's The Haunting Hour: The Series--Volume 1 and Volume 2 onto DVD, the perfect jump-start for kids this Halloween season! Both are obviously rated TV-PG, so not for little ones!

Here is the synopsis of each volume from the back of the DVD cases:

Stine (Goosebumps) returns with a brand-new anthology series guaranteed to thrill like never before!  Join special guest stars including Bailee Madison (Wizards Of Waverly Place) and Brendan Meyer (Mr. Young) as they take you through five excitingly eerie tales.  Prepare yourself for the thrill of the chill, nervous giggles and the SCREAM you let out when someone — or something! — touches your shoulder on a dark and stormy night.

Five More Eerie Tales From Season One!Master of children’s horror R.L. Stine (Goosebumps) brings the chills and thrills to your TV set once again with The Haunting Hour, a creepy, fun series that features a brand-new cast in a different blood-curdling situation each episode! So sit back and curl up with your most trusted flashlight . . . guaranteed to scare your socks off, five more eerie tales from The Haunting Hour’s first season begin now!  Featuring guest stars Thomas Robinson (The Protector), Bobby Coleman (Martian Child) and Grayson Russell (Diary Of A Wimpy Kid)!

Bonus Features include: A Look Behind the Screams * Original Promos

I think R.L. Stine's The Haunting Hour: The Series--Volume 1 and Volume 2 are perfect for the tweens and teens who want to get a bit spooked without all the adult content that you tend to find in most horror films. I have always enjoyed R.L. Stine's work and this is no different--I enjoyed them even as an adult. Having these in DVD format is sort of like have a master scary story teller sitting around the campfire but in the comforts of your own living room! There is a reason R.L. Stine has sold so many books and found his stories on film--he meets his target audience perfectly, in my opinion!

 Thank you to Shout Factory for my sample used in this review, opinions are honest.  Review by Michelle.
