5.0 out of 5 stars "Submitted for the approval of the midnight society, I call this story...", 13 Nov 2007
This review is from: Are You Afraid of the Dark? - The Complete Series 1 & 2 [1992] [DVD] (DVD)
Are You Afraid Of The Dark, was a children's horror/sci-fi series in the nineties. The stories were often based on urban legends, mythology, or short stores. The program evolved around a group of children who have formed a secret society and who gather around a camp fire late at night telling ghost stories. Are You Afraid Of The Dark was never gory or actually that frightening, but what it lacked there it made up with good story telling, good acting, and enjoyable plot twists, and to tell you the truth when I watched it as a child, the opening credits would be enough to scare me. Almost all the episodes in the series (which titles all start with 'The Tale Of...') were pretty good, and a joy to rewatch. There are a few lemons and a few episodes that I didn't enjoy but I guess that is to be expected. But my fravioute episodes would have to be "The Tale Of Laughing In The Dark," "The Tale Of The Pinball Wizard," and "The Tale Of Locker 22." I would have liked to seen some special features included, perhaps interviews, some deleted scenes never before broadcast or even something simple as there are none at all. But you do get a massive running time of 780 minutes (26 episodes) spread over the four discs which is more than enough to keep you entertained. Which for now at least is more than enough.

"I declare this meeting of the Midnight Society closed."
