With nothing but a handful of sand and a few stories in their heart, they set the pitter-patter heartbeats of children on a Saturday night into a frenzy. The Nickelodeon series focused on a group of teenagers, known as "The Midnight Society", who would gather around a campfire each week in a secret spot in the woods and tell scary stories hoping to get a rise out of each other. Mark Kaplan is meanwhile producing.
Are You Afraid of the Dark? is a smart move by Paramount Players, a division created last June to essentially mine any intellectual property at Viacom (the parent company of Paramount) for movie potential. And guess what? Nickelodeon falls under that umbrella.

Also added were carbon fiber exterior packs encompassing the front splitter and air intakes, rear bumper and roof panel. The gearshift paddles and steering wheel gain a gold-coloured satin finish that's repeated on the inside of each door.
Nickelodeon is, of course, one of those Viacom brands, along with MTV, Comedy Central and BET, and Are You Afraid of the Dark? was one of the key shows from the network's memorable SNICK lineup in the '90s. The show ran until April 1996, and a revival series with new writers, directors, writers and cast members was produced by Nickelodeon from 1999 to 2000.
Are You Afraid of the Dark? followed in the vein of more mature series such as Tales from the Crypt and Tales from the Dark Side, though it skewed toward younger audiences. It was like the "Goosebumps" show, but I think it was a bit more intense. This is wise, as nostalgia and kid-friendly horror is big right now, and Are You Afraid of the Dark? always played it straight. That might mean something closer in tenor to It and Netflix's Stranger Things.
