The headless horseman for teens.
7 April 2014 | by (Edinburgh.) – See all my reviews

It's time for a change in the third season of Are You Afraid Of The Dark? as Gary announces to the others that a couple of members have moved away, before introducing his younger brother, Tucker, as one potential new member. Tucker has to prove himself, of course, but he has a tale that he thinks will impress everyone around the campfire.

It's the tale of Sleepy Hollow, basically, as young Ian Matthews (Tighe Swanson) finds himself being terrorised by a headless horseman after he re-enacts the journey of Ichabod Crane, on a dare. Fortunately, he has the lovely Katie (Rachel Wilson) to force him into putting on a brave front.

Writer Darren Kotania does just fine here, updating a classic tale and throwing a couple of teenagers into the middle of it. Director D. J. MacHale also does well, helped by the two likable leads and the fun premise.

The episode is also boosted by the opening section, showing the change in the group as Gary (Ross Hull) tries to convince the others that his brother (Daniel DeSanto) will be a worthwhile addition.

It's a very good start to season three, and a fun riff on familiar fare.
