Sure I was only 5 years old at the time of this TV special's original airing, but it would always stick in my mind and I would be sure to watch it each and every Halloween growing up. The story is simple enough, Marc Summers and his gang of kids have a flat and must take refuge in a spooky mansion inhabited by Lance Burton. Instead of help, they get a magic performance from Lance that ends in one of my all time favorite illusions in which Lance has a swordfight with a masked man.
Not too scary for the kids but certainly interesting enough to keep their attention throughout, this was a perfect Halloween special that, as the only other viewer suggested, should definitely be brought back for a new generation to enjoy. Fans of Lance Burton's magic should also seek this out for an early look at his career and to see that he was just as much of a showman over 15 years ago.
