Storyline

A group of kids calling themselves "The Midnight Society" spends each episode sitting around a campfire swapping scary stories.

Trivia

To pay homage to Rod Serling, show creator D.J. MacHale had the kids say "Submitted for the approval of the Midnight Society" at the beginning of each story. To introduce each episode of The Twilight Zone (1959), Serling would say to the audience, "Submitted for your approval..." See more »

"Are You Afraid of the Dark" TV Series- 9/10. Pretty scary... maybe sometimes too scary for younger kids.
16 January 2004 | by movies2uSee 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.
