  • An episode about a voodoo doll, a toy that saves a boy's life, a curse on a house, and two others. This is a not so good episode in my opinion, but i still sort of kind of liked it. I'm more into episodes involving ghosts and unexplained creatures.moreless

    Fun episode with creepy segments. I feel that this episode was one of the weaker episodes and didn't really like it that much, but I still found it very fun. I'm more into the cooler ghostly episodes. I have nothing else to right really but they won't let me submit
