Watch on:


Frankelda, an energetic ghost writer, narrates spooky and fantastic ghost stories alongside his grumpy, but loyal book, Herneval. Frankelda’s stories come to life each episode, allowing us to witness chilling and fun tales about kids facing monsters (which incarnate their deepest fears). The anthology format brings a whole different set of characters to each episode, while, at the same time, gives us clues about Frankelda’s and Herneval’s tragic past.
