The Campfire Episode 4: The Tale of the Captured Souls and The Tale of the Nightly Neighbors (27 min)


Gather around The Campfire this week to hear reviews on episodes 7 and 8 of “Are You Afraid of the Dark?”: The Tale of the Captures Souls (Season 1, Episode 7: Original Air Date: September 26th, 1992) and The Tale of the Nightly Neighbors (Season 1, Episode 8 Original Air Date: October 3, 1992).

In The Tale of the Captures Souls, A family moves to a small house for summer vacation where they befriend a young man with an odd obsession for mirrors, and start feeling weaker every day.

Richard laments the death of several family pets and sings for the SPCA with Sarah McLachlan.

In the Nightly Neighbors, some new neighbors, originally from Eastern Europe, move into a small American neighborhood. A brother and sister notice that the neighbors wear black, collect blood, and are only active at night. Clearly they are vampires… or spies!

Nik is very annoyed that we didn’t just watch Fright Night instead.  

Join us on an episode that deals with science gone mad and vampire stereotypes that are harmful for an entire community.
