"Witch's Sister" was the best!
14 August 2006 | by (San Diego, California) – See all my reviews

I loved Episode #038, entitled "Witch's Sister," as a child. It was just the right blend of hokey and scary. Very well executed. Halloween was always my favorite holiday, and that movie would always set just the right mood. I especially loved the dream sequence in black and white where Judith is dancing through a graveyard amongst the tombstones. I was about the same age as the main character, Lynn, and I wished that I could have creepy adventures like the ones she and her best friend, Mouse, had. The spooky old house. The eerie neighbor woman. The mysterious and very attractive young man who's been coaxed out of his watery grave. What more could a budding young girl with an overactive imagination ask for? I, too, wish that these selections would be brought back so that they can be enjoyed again, even if by no one else other than myself.
