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>

Trivia

Ross Hull (Gary) was the only actor kept from The Midnight Society from the original pilot, although he originally played Frank. He was recast as Gary. Ryan Gosling had impressed D.J. MacHale during an early audition and was offered one of the roles of the Midnight Society, but he was committed to shooting The Mickey Mouse Club and declined. Once that show ended, he moved back to Canada and was cast in a guest-starring role in the episode "The Tale of Station 109.1". See more »

The Coolest Show for Kids
27 March 2003 | by PopRox9139See all my reviews

When I was a kid, I loved this show. It scared me all the time, and I probably lost a lot of sleep because of it, but it was worth it to see all of these stories told by regular kids. It sparked my love for horror. The absolute scariest episode for me was "The Night Shift" where vampires invade a hospital. I can still remember parts, and they still scare me. One of these days I'm going to start my own Midnight Society...in broad daylight...with soap operas...and cheese fondue. Pretty scary, huh?
