When Brooke gets the lead in a school play about a Phantom, she is thrilled... until the nightmares begin. At school there is talk of a real Phantom who has haunted the auditorium for years. Brooke tries to laugh it off. But when haunting messages appear on set, a trap door is discovered on stage, and a piece of scenery comes crashing down, it's no joke. Is Zeke, her best friend, up to his foolish pranks again? Or is Brooke's jealous understudy, Tina, up to no good? Maybe the answer lies beneath the stage, through the trap door, and at the end of the tunnel. Written by Anonymous

For everyone who thought Macbeth was THE cursed play, The Phantom proves otherwise.
4 February 2013 | by (Edinburgh.) – See all my reviews

A fun and atmospheric riff on The Phantom Of The Opera, this tale from the pen of R. L. Stine provides the usual mix of fun and, of course, goosebumps.

The story focuses on young Brooke Rogers (Jessica Moyes) as she prepares for her role in the school play "The Phantom". The play is said to be cursed and some of Brooke's co-stars are more than a little wary of it. Zeke (Shawn Potter) isn't bothered by the spooky story, however, as he just wants to have fun in the role of The Phantom, but it would seem that someone is determined to spoil his fun as he is set up to look like a troublemaker and subsequently removed from the play. Can Zeke get his role back? Who is lurking in the shadows? And IS the play actually cursed?

The cast all do a pretty good job here - including Kathryn Greenwood as the teacher and Stuart Stone as new boy Brian - and the direction is solid, but, as with every Goosebumps episode, the best aspect of the whole thing is the tale that is told by Stine, a master at judging just how scary to make something aimed at kids of a certain age.

Great stuff, as usual.
