Weekly Poll #164
We've been doing the best haunted house polls now for the past three weeks, and now, it's time to pit all the winning options against each other! Before we do that though, we need a dramatic reveal for the final winning option haha. The votes were quite spread out this time.
Quite a few episodes didn't do so well in the last poll. "Hollywood Knights!" got an abysmal zero votes, and "The Internet on Haunted House Hill!" didn't do much better, with only one vote. "Mystery of the Missing Mystery Solvers" was barely ahead of that with 2 votes, and "A Haunting in Crystal Cove" were just ahead of that with 4 votes.
There were several episodes that weren't close to winning, but did quite a bit better than the 1 and 2 vote episodes. We had a three-way tie for seventh place, between "House of the Nightmare Witch," "When There's a Will, There's a Wraith," and "The Wedding Witch of Wainsly Hall!", each getting five votes. "Nightfright" came in sixth place with 6 votes.
Our top five were the main contenders, and it was so close than any of them could have won had they gotten a few more votes. "Scoobynatural" came out fifth with seven votes. "A Haunt of a Thousand Voices!" was our fourth place choice with 8 votes. "High-Tech House of Horrors" came in third with 9 votes. "Escape from Mystery Manor" got 11 votes and came in second place. That means "Night Terrors" is our winner this week with 12 votes!
Now, it's time to pit all the winners against each other to find out which episode you all feel best executed the classic Scooby-Doo haunted house trope. It's "A Night of Fright Is No Delight" (which won our 60s/70s round) versus "Bravo Dooby Doo" (which won the 80s/90s round) versus "Night Terrors." I have a feeling "A Night of Fright Is No Delight" is going to come out way ahead as our winner, but it will be interesting to see how close it is in the end results!

Night Terrors for me that is the darkest one compared
2/5/2023 11:38:39 am
Agreed! The atmosphere in that episode is amazing!
2/5/2023 04:44:52 pm
That's my choice. Incredible atmosphere - pun intended!

It took me a moment to get the pun, but I finally got it haha.

Wow, what a trio of episodes. I'll go with Night Terrors personally. One of the best SDMI episodes, no doubt. It's on my mind more often than the other two options. While Bravo Dooby Doo is the best crossover and Night of Fright is obviously a classic (despite not quite being one of my favorite SDWAY eps), Night Terrors has that X factor. There's a strong argument to be made it has the best atmosphere in the whole franchise. Best and most memorable haunted house out of these 3 easily. And the best episode on top of that.

Agreed 100%. It's my favorite SDMI episode and I think it's easily one of the best settings in the entire franchise. "A Night of Fright Is No Delight" is a classic and I feel like it will win, but "Night Terrors" is what's getting my vote.

I had to vote for Bravo Dooby Doo, I don't know, but I feel like it's perfect, even if it's joke after joke and nothing serious like Night Terrors.
2/5/2023 12:49:19 pm
The other two episodes are far better to me, but I still consider “Bravo Dooby Doo” to be one of the best crossovers in the franchise, so I can definitely see the appeal!
2/5/2023 12:30:08 pm
I honestly can't remember Night Terrors, possibly calls for another MI rewatch. Would have gone for Mystery Manor but looks like I'll have to redirect my vote for a Night of Fright.

I would definitely recommend rewatching “Night Terrors.” It’s the best episode of SDMI imo because of the incredible atmosphere and excellent mystery.

If the comments are anything to go by, it seems like that could be the winning option!
2/5/2023 03:21:21 pm
Which means A Night of Fright is a lock to win lol
2/5/2023 03:33:09 pm
Pretty much haha.
2/5/2023 03:16:40 pm
This falls out pretty easily for me
2/5/2023 03:36:46 pm
3. Bravo Dooby Doo - an excellent mystery given the very short runtime and one of my favorite crossovers. However, this isn't even close to the other two for me.

That's awesome "Bravo Dooby Doo" is so high on your favorites list! Nothing from Where Are You really scared me as a kid personally; the main one I was scared of as a kid was Zomba from 13 Ghosts.
