If you’re having trouble getting into the Halloween spirit then one Reddit user has the perfect cure. Redditor R2Teep2 has painstakingly combed the vast wilds of YouTube to track down every single episode of 90’s Nickelodeon fright fest “Are You Afraid Of The Dark.” It turns out that the show, which ran from 1991 to 1996, is available in its entirety for free on YouTube. Unfortunately, the episodes are spread out over a handful of different channels making it a pain to watch them in order. That is, unless you have this handy catalogue of links.
The show featured a gang of teens known as The Midnight Society who would gather weekly around a campfire to exchange scary stories. Think the Twilight Zone but with a pre-teen spin. Some serious horror aficionados may doubt the scare factor of a show written for 90’s tweens, but I’m still paying a therapist to help me get over “The Tale Of The Ghastly Grinner” (Season 4, Episode 9) Pop culture enthusiasts can get an added bonus by spotting early appearances by future stars like Ryan Gosling, Neve Campbell and Hayden Christensen. So grab a bowl of candy corn and call a meeting of your personal Midnight Society through the magic of YouTube.
