Storyline

Aaron and Doug know something is strange about their new house when things start shaking and rearranging themselves for no reason. Aaron, whose belongings at school also move, dreams he sees someone who looks like his beautiful classmate Connie trying, but failing, to ward off a hideous-looking creature with magic. He learns that her twin sister, Laura, died the year before when the candles she was lighting for a spell set the room on fire. Doug is suffering the same kind of fever Laura did before she tried to rid the house of the resident corpse that nobody else believed existed. They have to figure out a way to stop it from claiming another life. Written by brainybrailler@comcast.net

Still scares the hell out of me!
14 August 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This is a really fun episode. It's basically Poltergeist for kids. Really well written and surprisingly well acted by the tale's ensemble.

After recently revisiting a handful of AYAOTD episodes I realized that I've outgrown the show's target audience and find most episodes rather silly, but this episode is quite an exception. I can honestly say that I'm still legitimately creeped out by the ghost that comes out of the wall. I recall having multiple nightmares about him as a kid and won't be surprised if I have some now.

This is definitely one of the show's all time best and holds up extremely well today.
