Really different, not scary, but so atmospheric., 2 August 2006
Author: Tommy Nelson from Long Beach, California

This is one of those episodes of this show that you watch and years later you remember the basic outline because of how different it is. The plot is a girl goes to her cousin's house, and is possessed by the ghost of her grandmother by putting on her jacket. The attic ends up opening up and they go to a weird past where she has to feed her pet hounds. It's a very odd episode, but it's really entertaining and the acting it is really good, and might be the best for any episodes of "Are you Afraid of the Dark?". This episode stuck in my ind for years, and I'm sure it will for you too.

My rating: Great episode. 26 mins. TVY7
