Basement boogie.
5 July 2013 | by (Edinburgh.) – See all my reviews

After the disappointment of the previous episode, this is a definite return to form for the first season of Are You Afraid Of The Dark?

Graham Selkirk plays Andy Carr, a young man who moves into a new home with his mother and his little sister. The new home seems to have something horrible in the basement, something that appears whenever some music is played. Unfortunately, Andy is also having problems elsewhere thanks to a local bully named Koda (Leif Anderson).

Written by Chloe Brown and directed by Ron Oliver, this is a fun episode that moves nicely between moments of darkness and moments that keep the central character removed from any immediate danger.

The acting is okay from all involved, certainly better than anything in the previous episode, but the big plus comes from the playful nature of the material. Fans of the show should enjoy this one. A lot.
