"My Old House" is the third episode of the fourth season of R.L. Stine's The Haunting Hour. The episode aired on October 11, 2014.
Alice and her family are moving to a new house, but Alice doesn't want to leave — and Alice discovers that the house doesn't want her to leave it...ever again.
Due to financial issues, Alice and her parents are forced to move away from their Victorian house. As much as her parents try to cheer her up, Alice isn't having it. The house (whose emotions are expressed through a "face" of two lights & a grate) is unhappy about the family moving. The night after her family moves, Alice hears someone calling "come back" and the next day, she skips school to go back to the house. When Alice enters the house, the house interacts with her, lighting the fireplace & giving her marshmallows to toast in it. After Alice's parents come searching for her, Alice realizes that she needs to back home, but the house refuses to let her leave. The two "eye" sconces extend from red ropes and form a snake head behind Alice & it grabs her as she screams. Later on, a new family moves into Alice's old house. The parents discover one of Alice's baby teeth in the fireplace where her box was burned. When the daughter looks at her new bedroom, she discovers not only the light sconcevent face, but an actual smiling human face (presumably Alice) in the wall. As the daughter runs out of the room, calling for her parents, a voice says "Welcome."
