Storyline

Good, but not great
16 March 2003 | by (Wisconsin, USA) – See all my reviews

This was nice that they revived the show, but these episodes were not the same compared to the older ones that aired from 1992 to 1996. The stories are good if you can get used to the new cast, but I still think the older stories were more original and a lot more creepier.
