Trivia

The only episode to have more than one break in the story to show the Midnight Society discussing it. Excluding the early interruption during which Betty Ann named the story, there was one break five minutes into the show and another at the halfway (commercial-break) point, where the others teased Kristen for her coulrophobia.

Quotes

[first lines]
Betty Ann: The park was called Playland, and it was the best. You could laugh, and scream, and get scared to death on rides, and stuff up on junk food, and ditch your parents - all on the same night.

Soooooo Creepy!
21 August 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The second episode "The Tale of Laughing in the Dark" is dramatically better than the first episode and the acting is way, way better. Plus, this episode has a creepy story to start with and it works because many people despise clowns. I personally don't, unless they are in scary movies or television of course.

This episode is about some kid who think he knows it all and decides to steal a clown's nose from the fun house. But the ghost of the clown, Zeebo decides to pay him a little visit.

Overall, this is an excellent episode because it was so creepy. In the final ten minutes, I had nonstop chills going through my spine. The acting may still not be the best, but at least it's way better than the previous episode and the kids are not annoying. I rate this episode 10/10.
