Bone Chillers

Show Summary

Bone Chillers is about four freshmen at Edgar Allan Poe High School, who not only have to deal with the normal pressures of competing with the cool kids and the jocks, but also have to contend with all sorts of weird happenings. Like the similar series "Goosebumps", it was based on a series of children's horror books, but in this case the stories that were originally about different people in each book were all changed to the setting of a haunted high school so as to provide a continuing cast. Assisting the main characters was Arnie the custodian, who lived in the school's basement. There was the feared cook of the school, Carl, the ditzy Miss Dewberry, and the evil Principal Pussman. At the end of each episode, original author Betsy Haynes would appear in an educational segment encouraging young viewers to exercise their imaginations.

  • Not as good as Goosebumps, but at least it wasn't random people every single episode!!

    Goosebumps was cool, but you really couldn't call it a series, since it was practically like the Twilight Zone, with no organized cast. Bone Chillers did something Goosebumps never accomplished-- a cast.

    The actual show was cheap, but everything was in the '90s. The characters were kind of dull, but it always had a great storylines and creepy monster action to go with it, I almost wish I had watched this on Saturday mornings instead of TMNT's last season. It doesn't seem like the books, since the books aren't like the show. But I never read more than 2 Bone Chiller books, so that doesn't matter. In general, this is a decent, forgotten show, and really is something that should be brought back.moreless
