Nickelodeon's 'Are You Afraid of the Dark' Set for Big Screen Adaptation

Are You Afraid of the Dark

Created by D.J. MacHale and Ned Kandel, the 1990s anthology series was set around a group of kids who called themselves the Midnight Society and would tell various scary stories, some of which were based on fairytales and urban legends but with an added modern twist. According to Variety, an Are You Afraid of the Dark movie is coming to bring the scariest part of your childhood back, and it's probably going to be even freakier than you remember.

This feature film adaptation will be written by It screenwriter Gary Dauberman. The group of teen storytellers called the Midnight Society left no subject un-horror-fied - meaning they knew just how to make any seemingly harmless tale terrifying once the lights went out.

Via The Hollywood Reporter, Dauberman indicated that his take on Are You Afraid of the Dark? would remain true to the spirit of the original series, which actually made its debut on Canada's YTV in 1990 before it was picked up by Nickelodeon. More on the story below.

Stay tuned to Horror News Network for more information concerning the adaptation of Are You Afraid of the Dark? as it becomes available. Are You Afraid of the Dark? was also turned into a book series, hot on the heels of R.L. Stein's Goosebumps series in 1993.

Nick joined the website in 2015. Since those early days, his life has been immersed in four color action and scares on the silver screen.
