but hey, what do i know ?
I had no clue until right now in this moment that this was based off an R. L. Stine series. Which explains some of the on the nose last names and silly towns like "shadyside", but instead of that seeming all too much (or childish) I think this series really runs with it.

Don't be an idiot like me and watch these outta order ❤️ i was just like ooooh camp one i'll watch that first, but that was not correct. clearly.

((so I'm really going to have to start telling my roommate no when she asks to watch her films lol))
