Thrills and chills, but who'll pay the bills?
10 September 2013 | by (Edinburgh.) – See all my reviews

A great episode of the show that has everything any horror aimed at kids should have: some kids, some slightly cuckoo elderly folks, a ghost and/or a villain.

Andrew Henry plays stuck-up young Charles Pemberton-Shilling III, a young man who, along with his babysitter (Melissa Joan Hart) is due to stay at the house of his slightly daffy aunts. When they get there they soon discover that the house has an interesting history, a history that includes a major crime and, yes, a "frozen" ghost.

Director Ron Oliver does just fine here, but he's helped a lot by the story (from writer Naomi Janzen). I enjoyed this when viewing it for the first time as an adult, and if I'd seen it as a youngster I know it would have been a favourite - maintaining just the right mix of fun and thrills.

The cast all do a good job, and it's always fun to see Melissa Joan Hart in a non-Sabrina role, with Sandra Scott and Sara Lee Stadleman adding to the enjoyment as the kindly aunts who are resigned to their lot in life. "It's not a lot, but it's their life," to paraphrase A Bug's Life.
