Boo Hoo!
24 May 2014 | by HitchcocSee all my reviews

After revisiting this series after 28 years, I would rename it "Not So Amazing Stories." I don't mean to be condescending because the did hit the mark a few times, but many of the episodes were formulaic and, frankly, a bit tiresome. This is one of those undistinguished offerings that just doesn't do it for me. A nuclear family decides to sell their house so he doesn't have to commute an hour each way to and from work. They suspect that the house is haunted (and we are given evidence from the start that it is) and so the wife insists on letting the prospective buyers know what they are getting into. The buyers don't seem to care because he is a sleazy porn director (played by Robert Picardo, the holographic doctor on Star Trek Voyaer) and his slinky, vapid wife is his star. He wants to use the house as his studio for making his films. The sellers are immediately upset by what they have wrought. Now we cut to the attic which is the dwelling place of the ghosts. A nice couple, including the actor Eddie Bracken and his wife, who happen to be dead, enjoy their time their and have adopted the family as theirs. They are insulted by these new people as everything they do to drive them away just endears them to the place. Now it's time for a dramatic action. See what happens.
