Eerie, Indiana: The Other Dimension

Revision date: September 21, 2013

Compiled by Loren Heisey


Series notes

It's the eeriest city on the planet, Eerie, Indiana where two teenagers, named Mitchell Taylor and Stanley Hope, are the only ones who actually encounter weird things occurring and they are the only ones who want to stop these strange happenings. The two kids receive help from Mr. Crawford, the proprietor of the World O' Stuff, if they are in trouble.

The show is a sequel to the original series Eerie, Indiana but with a completely different cast. Unfortunately this show didn't manage to capture the charm of the original. It only lasted one season. In the first episode there is a link between the original show and this sequel.

In January 2013 the U.S. FEARnet cable channel started re-running the series.
