Little ghost is feeling dead lonely.
30 November 2012 | by (Edinburgh.) – See all my reviews

Directed by D. J. Machale and written by Naomi Janzen, this is a cracking episode of Are You Afraid Of The Dark? and it mixes some really creepy moments (for kids) with a nice, emotional story development.

Laura Bertram plays Amanda Cameron, a young girl who ends up staying with her snotty cousin (Beth, played by Laura Levin). Beth knows that she can take advantage of the situation, and she's used to pushing people around anyway, so she tells Amanda that the two can be friends and spend time together on one condition - Amanda spends time in the haunted house next door. It's not long until Amanda sees the ghost but it takes a while to realise just how she can be helped.

While the central story is a good one, the other plus point for this episode is the development of characters in The Midnight Society. The beginning and end of the episode features a couple of sweet moments between Dave (Nathaniel Moreau) and Kristen (Rachel Blanchard), which makes the wraparound content feel that little bit more substantial as opposed to just a necessary evil.

It's a step up from the first two episodes and feels like the series is finally finding its feet.
