This Halloween, Claire (Julie Bowen) might not be coming on quite as strong as we’d hoped after the last “spook-tacular” haunted house performance. Why? Read on to find out.

Check out our guide for season 4 episode 5 of Modern Family, “Open House of Horrors”:

    There were a few things that were especially funny in this
    episode, like when Cam is flashing the guests,
    and Gloria confiscating the teenage kids’ candy. My favorite story line though was when Claire
    was egged on by Phil to do something scary, only, I don’t think he expected he
    would be the victim! Since I love the
    show so much, I save all of the episodes now instead of buying them on DVD at the
    end of the season. My DISH coworker
    reminded me of the thousands of hours of HD recording time on my Hopper DVR so I
    figured it was stupid to pay that money each year. Now, I get more out of my TV service and my
    wife is happy she has more purse money; LOL!
