** The twist ending of "Spaceman" bears a disturbing resemblance to the famous twist of ''Film/{{Psycho}}'', but with a space theme thrown in for good measure.

* TheBadGuyWins: Since this is a horror show after all, expect the villain to succeed in haunting their targets.
** "My Old House": [[spoiler: The house gruesomely murders Alice (or [[AndIMustScream something worse]]) and gets away with it. To make it all the more disturbing, a new girl moves into the house and it gives a big SlasherSmile to show us [[FridgeHorror that it plans to take her next]].]]
** "Mascot": [[spoiler: Big Yellow kills Willie and keeps his job as school mascot with nobody the wiser.]]
** "Catching Cold": [[spoiler: The ice cream truck abducts Marty and drives off with him trapped inside forever.]]
** "Headshot": [[spoiler: Cassandra owns Gracie's soul forever, leaving the girl hideously scarred for life.]]



* DullSurprise:
** In "Uncle Howee," Jared takes it in a little too well that a fictional children's show host has come to life outside the TV, broken into his house, abducted his sister, and is threatening his life while holding him hostage.
** In "My Old House," Alice looks a lot less intimidated than she should be upon seeing [[spoiler: the house's true demonic form readying to kill her. Though, [[SoundOnlyDeath her screams definitely make up for it.]]]]
** In "Inturders," Eve doesn't look as frightened as she should be when she notices [[spoiler: the army of evil fairies charging up at her front door.]]

[[quoteright:350:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/haunting_5106.png]]''R. L. Stine's The Haunting Hour: The Series'' is a horror series airing on ''The Hub'' (now called Discovery Family). Like the TV adaptation of ''Series/{{Goosebumps}}'' and the short-lived series, ''Literature/TheNightmareRoom'', it is a horror GenreAnthology series featuring a different story every week filled with kids facing off against ghosts, monsters, and other supernatural beings. Unlike ''Goosebumps'', the stories are much, ''much'' more darker (heck when it was running, there was a disclaimer about it's content before the episodes began. Yeah, ''Hub'' was ''not'' taking any blame if any kids got unsettled watching this) and not all of them are adapted from R.L. Stine's works. Those that are come mainly from the ''Literature/NightmareHour'' and ''Literature/TheHauntingHour'' short story collections.

** A particularly infuriating example occurs in "Lotsa Luck" where [[spoiler the protagonist Greg's great grandfather gets no comeuppance for landing Greg in the mess he is in and for Seamus taking Greg's soul to settle his debt as the great grandfather wished in the episode) Greg wsa a decent person and his great grandfather screwed him over without consequence]]

** The House from "My Old House" is a sentient building with the ability to summon food, manipulate everything inside of it, communicate through dreams, [[turns into a blood red snake made out of its wiring, and can speak]], but we have absolutely ''no idea'' as to what the heck it actually is and how it even came into existence. Which makes its presence all the more horrifying if you realize that [[ParanoiaFuel it's been watching the family for years.]]

** [[spoiler: The CruelTwistEnding has the ghost of Cyrus proving to be RealAfterAll and demanding one of the kids provide him with a new leg, showing off his hatchet to prepare for surgery.]]

** The Alp from "Red Eye" is a shadow demon that has the ability to insert itself within photos, send threatening letters capable of altering themselves, haunt Georgia's nightmares, turn into a specter, and [[spoiler: can possess human beings]]. However, we have no clue how it exists, what its motivation is, or why it's even bothering with stalking a random little girl and her father.



* GenericDoomsdayVillain: Quite a number of the monsters on this show can come across as this if they have no character or real motive for doing the villainous things they do.

** "Scarecrow" features a literal one through the titular scarecrow. The monster wants to wipe out all life on the planet and bring an end to the world, but we don't know exactly why it wants to bring death to everything.
** The pumpkinheads like to decapitate random people and replace their heads with pumpkins in order to generate more pumpkin people, but their end goal to why they're doing this is never brought up at all and we get zero explanation on how Farmer Palmer was capable of bringing them into this world outside of him being evil.



* RedEyesTakeWarning: Happens in "Intruders": Lyria the forest fairy acts kind and generous to Eve, but once Eve refuses to hand her brother over for the Fey Folk to sacrifice, in addition to harming Lyria with ColdIron, the fairy's eyes flash red as she swears to Eve that she will rue the day she defied the Fey. [[spoiler: The episode ends with Eve holding her baby brother and looking out the window, where she sees ''hundreds of red eyes staring back at her from the woods'', and the Fair Folk beginning to descend upon her house...]]
