  • Another Great episode

    This is another good episode of the series. A boy by the lake hears very eerie music while sleeping that wakes him up. And when he plays music in the Juke Box something from the lake moves closer to the house. He also sees a girl suddenly appear outside his window. Then when he plays music again he turns around and shes walking right at him. He then notices his little sister rowing away in a row boat because she saw a lady and heard music. The only reason the mother could afford the place is because of the stories. The boy is convinced that something paranormal is going on and the mother is a skeptic. Kind of like Mulder and Scully. The one seen when the boy is awaken by music will really creep you out since the music is just so eerie sounding. The episode is about a ghost girl that haunts the place because her boyfriend never came back from the war and she is waiting for somebody to play the last dance song out of the juke box so that she can be reunited with him when all the ghost people relive the dance.moreless
  • After moving into a new house by a lake, a family begins hearing music play late at night. When they investigate, they discover an old jukebox is the source of the sounds and that someone or something wants to hear the old records play.moreless

    Up until the end, this episode was going great. The spook factor was reletively high, and the mysterious music was an interesting idea. However, the end nearly spoils a perfectly good episode by being lame and, for lack of a better term, Hallmark-ish (as many of the endings in this series seem to be). All in all, this is certainly not the worst tale but definitely not the best.
