Fans of the popular Disney Channel show Hannah Montana will get to see two of their favorite actors in a new DVD hitting shelves this September. Emily Osment (Lilly) and Cody Linley (Jake Ryan) star in R.L.Stine’s The Haunted Hour: Don’t Think About It, a made-for-DVD movie from Universal Studios Home Entertainment and The Hatchery, LLC. Emily stars as 13-year-old Cassie, a Goth girl trying to adjust to a new school and neighborhood. She starts playing some spooky pranks on the cool kids at school, scaring them and her little brother. But right before Halloween, Cassie finds a mysterious book called “The Evil Thing” that changes her life forever.
R.L. Stine has brought award-winning stories to children with his Goosebumps series of books that have sold over 220 million copies so far. The FOX Kids’ show based on the books aired for four years and was named by TV Guide as one of the best children shows on television. The Haunted Hour: Don’t Think About It DVD includes bonus material with a closer look at Stine called “Think About It! R.L. Stine’s Journey of Imagination.” Other extras on this DVD are the Interactive Scare-O-Meter, “The Making of Don’t Think About It,” and a music video from none other than Emily Osment that has never been seen before now!
Emily makes her musical debut singing the theme song for the movie: “I Don’t Think About It.” On Hannah Montana, Emily’s character Lilly takes a backseat to her popstar friend Miley Stewart (Miley Cyrus), but she steps into the lead in this movie. Emily and Cody have both been in movies before they gained fame from HM – Emily played Gerti Giggles in the second and third installments of the Spy Kids movies, while Cody starred in Hoot.
R.L. Stine’s The Haunted Hour: Don’t Think About It spooks up store shelves on September 4.
