Awesome / Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark

  • The farmhand's revenge on the witch in "A New Horse". A magnificent example of power backfiring.
  • In "Harold", Thomas and Alfred constantly use the scarecrow as a punching bag, even after they start to see signs that he's alive. It makes Harold's evolution to a living nightmare as awesome as it is horrifying.
  • Their version of "The Babysitter and the Man Upstairs" ends with the police showing up to arrest the lunatic in the house when he comes downstairs. It seems the babysitter in this one was much more Genre Savvy.
  • "The Cat In The Shopping Bag", where a Christmas thief gets her comeuppance.
    Mrs. Briggs: This is hers. It's her Christmas present! She wouldn't want to lose it.
