This episode Scarecrow Walks at Midnight is based on Goosebumps book
When Jodie and her brother Mark go to their grandparents for the summer, they find out that the scarecrows their are very much alive...
This is a particularly creepy episode with the theme of scarecrows. Such as when you see A scarecrow walking past a door at night and Jodie wakes up (from what is really a dream) to find that some scarecrows invade their house thinking its her grandparents. Jodie (played by Heather Bertram) does a good job at he role (considering this was her first part (according to IMDb), Mark (played by John E. Campbell) is also good as the younger brother of Jodie. Sticks (played by Kris Lemche, He was also in Final Destination 3 and Ginger Snaps 1)) is a hard working country bumpkin who tries to hide the secret of the scarecrows.) This is a good adaptation of the book with very good acting by all the cast. It has several jump scares. I give it a 6/10.
This is a superior Goosebumps episode, and one that is likely to raise
the titular signs of fear on the arms of younger viewers.
Heather Bertram and John E. Campbell are Jodie and Mark, two youngsters visiting their grandparents at their farm. It isn't long until they notice that their grandparents are acting a bit strange. Things don't feel like they used to. Is the episode title to be taken literally? And if scarecrows are walking around at night, why would that change the behaviour of grandma and granpa?
Bertram and Campbell both do okay here, but there's more fun to be had watching Michael Copeman as Stanley, a farm helper who also seems to be acting strangely, and a young Kris Lemche (billed as Chris Lemche) as Stanley's teenage son.
Scott Peters does a decent job of bring the story to screen, and director Randy Bradshaw enjoys making some moments as scary as possible, especially during the first moment of tension.
The second half fizzes out slightly in comparison to the first half, but this is still a great episode of the show that gets the balance of fun and frights just right.
