Mind the lady in Apartment 214, she's a bit Mad.
18 April 2014 | by (Edinburgh.) – See all my reviews

Another very good episode, this third season of "Are You Afraid Of The Dark?" certainly got off to a great start. I can't wait to see whether or not they manage to keep up this level of quality for the rest of the season.

The story this time is all about Stacy (Lea-Helen Weir) and her mother (Denise McLeod) moving into a new apartment. They're just along from Apartment 214, funnily enough, and it's not long until Stacy meets the resident of that place, an elderly woman named Madeline (Beth Amos). The two get along very nicely, but Madeline has a real fear of being left alone. And there's something else that Stacy should know.

Mixing some nice, spooky moments with some heartwarming stuff, this is a great, atmospheric tale to be told around the campfire of The Midnight Society. Written and directed by Scott Peters, it really gets the balance just right, and I hope that many think of it as a favourite episode.

Weir is fine in her role, and Amos is very sweet. McLeod has less to do, as the mother who is kept in the dark, and Paul McKan is amusing for his one or two scenes (as the building "super" keeping track of his tenants).

Great stuff, and one of the few episodes that I would go out of my way to rewatch if I caught it starting on TV.
