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

The pilot episode, "The Tale of the Twisted Claw", was released on Halloween Night of 1990. D.J. MacHale was livid when he found out, because he felt kids would be too preoccupied with trick-or-treating to be concerned with anything on TV that night. He was convinced that the show would never be picked up to series and was pleasantly surprised to find out he was wrong. See more »

Good, but not great
16 March 2003 | by CrowServoNelsonSee all my reviews

This was nice that they revived the show, but these episodes were not the same compared to the older ones that aired from 1992 to 1996. The stories are good if you can get used to the new cast, but I still think the older stories were more original and a lot more creepier.
