According to the show, the town of Dark Falls appears totally deserted, with every resident hiding inside their homes, but during the intro while Mr. Benson is driving through Dark Falls and talking about the town recently losing jobs, Mrs. Benson's side mirror on the family van reflects a truck driving behind them, and the cameraman is visible in the truck.

Excellent two part series!
25 May 2017 | by (Unknown) – See all my reviews

NOTE: This review will also be on 'Welcome to Dead House: Part 2' since they are the same story.

These two sets of the Welcome to Dead House episodes are excellent with high production value and acting from everyone.

The story is that The Benson family has moved to a town called Dark Falls and find out that the community there is a little creepy. Will they find out what caused it? I don't want to give anything away but these episodes are amazing.

I give 'Goosebumps: Welcome to Dead House: Part 1 and 2' a 10/10.
