The original translation of one of Mokou's lines,

居るはずのお化け役が消えたお化け屋敷程、
怖い物は無いのよ。

reads as follows:

A ghost house, but with nobody dressed as a ghost.
That is truly fearful.

I'm wondering wether Mokou is really citing an example of true terror, or actually arguing against Marisa's comment that the eeriest thing is for nothing to happen. In the latter case, I would translate Keine's line like so:

In a haunted house without ghosts,
there is nothing to fear.

Literally, above statement translates as
'Nothing is fearful as' (~程, 怖い物は無いのよ。)
'Ghost house without' (~が消えたお化け屋敷)
'any expected ghost-dressed peoples' (居るはずのお化け役)
So she's actually agreeing to Marisa's comment and giving a example.
By the way, is above lines are Keine's? I thought it was Mokou..

Oops, Mokou's lines, yes. Wasn't paying attention. She's agreeing in a way that sounds kind of like disagreeing. Isn't that the way.
