Leif's Review of Goosebumps - The Haunted Mask
Ah, the original episodes...They're scary, quirky, fun, and great for any halloween party. This one is my favorite. The ending is actually kind of scary. Something about it is really creepy. Better than all the other crap getting played now on TV.
It's about Carlie Beth who wants to scare some bullies. She steals a scary 'haunted mask' against a creppy old guy's warning (he reminds me of Jig-Saw). She puts a model of her head on a pole and the mask begins to eat her alive. She scares the bullies and begins acting evil. In the end she feels happy that she learned her lesson.
Some people wouldn't call Goosebumps a kids show for it's acts of violence and the fact that it scares children. I say, it's one of the best shows of all time. Sadly they only release a couple episodes on DVD from time to time. If you want to catch more episodes you have to watch it on Cartoon Network during halloween. I hope one day they release a huge blu ray boy of goosebumps. I would buy it.
Until then we'll be stuck buying DVD by DVD. The Haunted Mask was the pilot and is a good place to start if you're new to the franchise.
