  • During the summer a girl is made to go spend her vacation with her Aunt in a northern town...only to find there is a strange ghost of a lonely girl haunting a certain home and an old lady who avoids it for reasons unknown.

    THEE best episode of "Are you Afraid of the Dark?" and certainly one of the scariest, this is what made the show great. It is surpringly one of the earliest episodes, though admittedly the first few seasons were the best. The concept was thrilling and the follow through with the plot gripping. The girl girl and her habit of writing "EMPLEH" all over the walls was terryfying for kids, I remember being scared out of my pants back then, so I'm surprised it was used in this children's show. What made the episode great was also how sad the whole story line was, a real tear jerker. Definetly a must watch of the series.
