Games start to get serious on the thirteenth floor.
Directed by Michael Keusch and written by Anne Appleton, this episode of "Are You Afraid Of The Dark?" is as entertaining as it is silly and endearingly over the top.
Trish Lindstrom and Shawn Ashmore play young Karin and Billy, respectively, two children who spend most of their time playing about in the emptiness of the thirteenth floor in their apartment block. The previous tenants just disappeared about a decade ago and the place has never been used since then. It turns out, of course, that the thirteenth floor isn't as empty as everyone thinks.
Christopher Heyerdahl (As Leonid) and Susan Glover (as Olga) are good fun as a couple of characters who act as if they have just escaped from the local lunatic asylum and are desperately trying to pass themselves off as sane human beings. Lindstrom and Ashmore are both fine in their roles, and everyone else on screen has some fun.
In many ways this isn't a great episode, but it makes up for its many failings with a sense of fun and a fantastic punchline at the very end of the tale.
