A supernatural tale that's as sweet as it is predictable, this particular episode of campfire spookiness focuses on a young man (Fab Filippo) who finds a ring in his work locker, which leads to him then finding his potential dream girl (Shanya Vaughan). Unfortunately, this coincides with him realising that everyone seems to be ignoring him, with the exception of his sister (Andrea Nemeth).
Written by David Preston, and directed by David Winning, this might be far from the spookiest episode of "Are You Afraid Of The Dark?" but it's a traditional tale that unfolds nicely, making the journey more important than the final destination.
Vaughan doesn't really have much to do, besides appearing and looking like the object of Filippo's affection, but she's fine. Filippo and Nemeth both do well, with both excelling in a crucial scene near the very end of the episode.
Hardened viewers might find themselves yearning for something a bit scarier, but I enjoyed this episode as something that managed to be relatively light without ever feeling dull.
