Edgar Allen Poe High School is one scary place to go through the trials and tribulations of youth. Each week, students are confronted with monsters (Mummies, Giant Frogs), as well as horrible cafeteria food. Written by
Bone Chillers may have been aimed at kids, but it was a fresh, funny, and well-made, which broadens the scope of its appeal to appreciative people of all ages. But unfortunately there weren't enough appreciative people and it lasted only a season, and now its talented, attractive young cast has been lost to mostly small prime time TV appearances and bit parts in teen movies. Bone Chillers was just fun without being overly cheesy or annoying. It never held back on being disgusting (monsters had eyes that fell out, teachers ate sticky frog-egg sandwiches, a hypnotized Fitz drooled long strings of saliva), and it wasn't afraid to make jokes only parents would understand. It was shot well, brightly acted, had clever plots (derived from Betsy Hayne's books), and was good, clean, undemanding fun.
