Trivia

The last episode to show a scene with the Midnight Society discussing the story partway through the telling (and the first to do so since "The Tale of the Prom Queen"). Afterwards only the narrator could be heard speaking in the background, but only infrequently, briefly, and not for very many episodes afterward. See more »

Vink before you shriek.
1 October 2013 | by (Edinburgh.) – See all my reviews

An episode that includes a number of my favourite things - horror, cinema and Nosferatu (well, sort of) - ends up, unsurprisingly, being one of my favourites.

It's all about a cinema that has seen better days. Numbers are dwindling, with most movies screening to an audience of one. Young Pete (Eddie Robinson) is hoping for some miracle to happen. He may not love every part of his job, but he does love the cinema. His colleague, Katie Halloran (Melanie Wiesenthal), has accepted that they won't be working there much longer. Neither of them expected a visit from Dr. Vink (Aron Tager), a man providing them with a tempting offer. He will allow them to show a movie, a rare print of Nosferatu, which he suspects will reverse the fortunes of the cinema. There's just one catch. Dr. Vink wants one night a week to show his own movie. All seems good until the cinema manager (Harry Standjofski) reneges on the deal.

Directed by D. J. MacHale and written by Chloe Brown, this episode of "Are You Afraid Of The Dark?" is great entertainment from start to finish. The acting from everyone is fun without being too over the top (unlike the acting in some episodes) and the fact that one or two scenes have a bit of "The Purple Rose Of Cairo" to them provides some added appeal for cineastes.

It may not be the scariest episode of the show, but it's one of the most fun, in my opinion.
