    The reason I liked this episode is because not only was it scary and suspenseful, but also because it was also funny at parts. It is better than it sounds. Trust me! If you haven't watched this episode before, watch it! It is a great episode and has a scary monster that is now one of my favorite monsters, next to the scarecrow from The Scarecrow Walks at Midnight and the werewolf from The Werewolf of Fever Swamp. My favorite part is when the monster (Mr. Mortman) starts chasing her out of the library. As I said before, If you haven't watched this episode before, watch it!moreless

  • This is one of the greatest Goosebumps episodes in the world. Yes I love this episode.

    This episode is more of an episode directed by William Fruet or Randy Bradshaw. My fave character is Randy Dark because he talks funny (no offence) and obviously Lucy Dark since she is the main character. John Bell directed this episode and he couldn't improve this one because he already made it with excellence. Yeh John Bell Rules. The Monster that Lucy cried was no where near how I imagined it whilst reading the book. I imagined a giant with a black hole but one like a tornado! Huh, what a funny thought. Anyway this episode rocks bigtime. Keep up the good work John Bell!moreless
  • Awesome! One of the best episodes there is. But...not in the top 3. Maybe...number 5. Yea number 5, I'll tell ya number 4 later...

    I knew it was coming, I knew it. I knew it'd be scary. The beginning did a lot of work in helping. "The Razor-Tooth-Toe-Biter," said Lucy to Randy. Yep, they had to get ya right there. That little scream Randy gave. Ahaha! Sorry Randy, or shall I say...ah, what's his name...? Brandon Bone. Sorry Brandon, but when you were like, uh...maybe six through eight, you screamed like a girl! But I guess you'd sorta expect that, he's little. The monster effects for Mr. Mortman, oh my gosh! That was incredible! The bulging black eyes...! Excellent! That tarantula in his mouth! I thought it was real!!! Until my mom said it wasn't. Speaking of my mom, she watched it and loved it also...except for the end. Well, should I give it away......? Nah...moreless
