The only episode to show a storyteller (Betty Ann) speaking partway through the story without the comments of another Midnight Society member (though one was shown later). In all the other times this happened, a voiceover was merely used. See more »

Their car's here, they gotta be home, why didn't they answer the door? What if they're KGB agents who had to bolt when the Soviet Union crumbled? Or gypsies searching for a new home?

New neighbours seem strange, and perhaps a bit bloodthirsty.
Full of clichés and silly moments, this episode (entitled "The Tale Of The Nightly Neighbors" was still one that I found very enjoyable.
Suzanna Schebib plays young Emma Toll, who ends up getting more than a little bit suspicious of the new neighbours (I'm British so I will use the British spelling when not quoting the title directly, deal with it). Along with her little brother (Noah Godfrey), she sets out to confirm her suspicions, all the while making sure that none of the neighbours are invited into her home.
The Braun family (mother and father played, respectively, by Francoise Robertson and Carl Alacchi and their son is played by Johnny Morina) hail from Transylvania, wear black clothes, have large objects delivered to their house and are never seen out and about during the day. Did I mention the fact that a number of people in the area start feeling unwell and have plasters on their necks? Yes, it's time for an easy game of spot the vampire cliché. But, in the context of a show like this, I think that adds to the fun. And there's always the chance of a twist ending.
Written by Chloe Brown and directed by Jacques Payette, this episode may suffer from some bad acting (especially from those playing the Brauns) and individual moments that don't have a decent pay-off, or any real reason for being included in the story, but it's over the top fun that deliberately plays up all of the vampiric elements to try and lead viewers on a merry dance. The Brauns are so obviously vampires that they can't possibly be vampires. Right?
