Quotes

Beth: Anyway, one day her mom got a letter. Her dad, who was away in the war, had gotten sick, so she sent the little girl to stay with her grandmother while she went away to take care of him. Only the little girl didn't make it to her grandmother's, because on the way some mean kids surrounded her, and teased her. She ran back home to get away from them. They followed her, right to her very own home. They locked her in her bedroom, and she didn't escape alive.

Another Scary Episode!
21 August 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The third episode, "The Tale of the Lonely Ghost" is not as scary or chilling as the second episode, but it still features plenty of chills. The acting is solid even though I found the cousin very annoying and bratty. I liked the ending because it's somewhat of a surprise and this episode is written well. Also, there is some good character development within the Midnight Society itself.

This episode is about a girl who is sent to live with her aunt and cousin for the summer. In order to hang out with her cousin and friends, she must spend the night in the haunted house next door.

Overall, this is a very good episode that is slightly less scary than the previous episode. However, the last two episodes are proving to be effective after a lackluster start. I rate this episode 9/10.
