Late Flashback Friday Post-Halloween Style-Are You Afraid Of The Dark? (1990-2000)

The scariest stories are sometimes told by a burning campfire.

Between 1990 and 2000, Nickelodeon had its own version of telling scary stories via campfire in Are You Afraid Of The Dark?

The episodes focused on a group of kids who called themselves “The Midnight Society”. Gathering around a campfire, each member would narrate a specific episode. While the stories were enough to make some in the audience jump, they were not as violent or gory as they could have been.

Some of the actors who can list this program on their resume include Elisha Cuthbert, Vanessa Lengies, Joanna Garcia-Swisher, Jay Baruchel and Jewel Staite.  Looking back, the horror is a little PG. But for a kids show, it’s plenty scary, especially for those with enough of an imagination.

Do I recommend it? Yes.
