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

As the most-frequent storyteller of the original Midnight Society, Betty Ann told 12 stories. Gary and Kiki, the only other members present through the whole of the original series run, each told 10 (including Gary's sharing the two-part "The Tale of Cutter's Treasure" with Frank). Tucker told 7, Frank (counting "The Tale of Cutter's Treasure") and Sam each told 6, David and Kristen each told 5. Eric and Stig, each there for 13 stories, only each told 2. In the new Midnight Society founded by Tucker, he told 6, Megan told 5, and Vange, Andy, and Quinn each told 4. See more »

Clever, fast paced and scary show should appeal to both kids and grown ups. It is about a group of school kids called The Midnight Society that gather around a camp fire on Saturday nights to tell each other some scary stories. Some of my favorites are an intense eposide about a paper clown who has his nose stolen. He haunts the kid who took the nose. A thoughtful one about a young girl who gets everything she every wanted, but the clerk takes something away from her that the girl takes for granted. And my third favorite would have to be an updating of the headless horseman legend. Rated Y7 when it was on TV there are some intense moments and off screen or hinted at killings, but no on screen deaths. Neve Campbell once starred as an employee at an upscale restuarant where your darkest fears come true. Melissa Joan Hart was in one about a cold ghost. Another one found the twins from the show Sister Sister dueling it out. Many many more guest stars.
