‘Are You Afraid of the Dark’ Scene Premiers Ahead of Release

Premiering October 11 on Nickelodeon, a scene from the Are You Afraid of the Dark miniseries has been uploaded online to give viewers a glimpse of what’s in store.

First aired in 1990 and continuing until 1996 and again from 1999 to 2000 in a second series, each rendition of the show focused on a group of storytellers who called themselves “The Midnight Society.” They would gather every Saturday night at a clearing in the woods for a member to tell a tale around a campfire that would often include ghosts, witches, goblins and other spooky creatures.

The new group includes Sam Ashe Arnold as Gavin, Miya Cech as Akiko, Tamara Smart as Louise, Jeremy Ray Taylor as Graham and Lyliana Wray as Rachel. Rafael Casal stars as The Carnival of Doom’s ringmaster, Mr. Tophat, the miniseries’ main antagonist.

No original cast members from either of the 1990’s series are slated to return.

Mark McCurley
Staff Writer at Horror News Network
Since Mark was four years old he has always loved the horror genre, even when his mother would be a good parent and not let him watch such films. It was when he would sneak into the Horror section at the video store called Tommy K's that he would see all of the VHS covers of classics like Friday the 13th and A Nightmare on Elm Street.

During his time as a journalism major and news staff writer at Southern CT State University, he had the pleasure of meeting and interviewing paranormal investigator Lorraine Warren before a seminar in 2009 at the Lyman Center on campus.
