User Reviews

comic opener to the second part
15 October 2017 | by framptonhollisSee all my reviews

This episode isn't so much "horror" or "supernatural" as it is straight up preteen comedy. It is pretty entertaining and likable, with some good comedic moments here and there. For example, when Zane meets his cousins for the first time in a few years, their interactions are realistically awkward in the most hilarious possible way! Unfortunately, a lot of the other comedy was derived from trashy puns, but it is so lighthearted and fun that I can forgive its great abundance of flaws. It's a nice, funny twenty minutes that serve as a nice intro to the characters who are soon to be put into absolute peril in the second, more successful and scary part.
