Storyline

A group of kids calling themselves "The Midnight Society" spends each episode sitting around a campfire swapping scary stories. Creepy, but never gory or excessively frightening, common subjects included haunted houses, what goes on behind the neighbor's walls, and other things that go bump in the night. Written by Jean-Marc Rocher <rocher@fiberbit.net>

"Are You Afraid of the Dark" TV Series- 9/10. Pretty scary... maybe sometimes too scary for younger kids.
16 January 2004 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Are You Afraid of the Dark (1992) TV Series

I will say, this show is pretty scary. Some episodes are stupid, but most of them are pretty creepy, and this show is sure to scare younger kids. I remember watching this show, and some of the episodes really freaked me out. "The Frozen Ghost" episode, with special guest star Melissa Joan Hart was pretty scary, and had some disturbing moments when it shows the child's ghost. This is a good show, but I'd recommend it for kids about 10 or older, unless your kid is pretty brave. 10/10.
