The Haunting Hour: The Series Christmas (2010)

 I'm continuing my countdown to Halloween covering scary, creepy and Halloween-appropriate Christmas entertainments. 

Are you a fan of R.L. Stine--the children's lit/horror writer?  Did you watch the 1990s Nickelodeon TV series Goosebumps that was based on his books?  

There's also a new TV series from R.L. Stine entitled The Haunting Hour: The Series airing on the Hub.  The family-friendly anthology series created a scary Christmas episode in its first season, December 2010.

Look what Timmy finds under the Christmas tree...
In the episode "A Creature Was Stirring," the Morgan family discovers a monster under their tree on Christmas morning!  The bickering parents have to come together with their two selfish teens and their young son Timmy in order to avoid the destruction of the mischievous demon.  Will they be able to safely escape before the Creature burns down their house? 

uh-oh.  "Dear Santa, next year I'd prefer a beach vacation..."
For the first time in a long time, the Morgans have come together, confessing they feel like a family once again.  Was this Timmy's Christmas wish after all?

The demon creature kind of reminds me of a winged gremlin--as in the 1984 movie Gremlins.  Have you seen this family-friendly Christmas classic too?
