The boy who spied wolf.
11 November 2013 | by (Edinburgh.) – See all my reviews

Written and directed by Ron Oliver, "The Tale Of The Full Moon" is an episode of "Are You Afraid Of The Dark?" that starts off as something predictable and potentially dull and then becomes quite a delightful episode.

Young Jed (Dominic Zamprogna) and his friend, Hughie (Jesse Lavendel), are a pair of pet detectives. Unfortunately, there's a lot more to worry about than just missing pets when Jed suspects that his neighbour is a werewolf. Not only that, but his mother is dating the guy.

It may never have any real tension or scares, but this is much more entertaining than it should be, mainly thanks to a fantastic double-whammy of a punchline that twists everything slightly.

Zamprogna and Lavendel are alright as the youngsters who set out to find out whether or not things are getting hairy in their neighbourhood, but this episode is as good as it is thanks to Ron Oliver, who wrote a fun script and then ensured that it was well presented on screen.
