Just try saying the words, “Are You Afraid of the Dark,” around a group of 90s kids and then sit back for the storm of nostalgia it will inspire.
Nickelodeon was where it was at back in the 90s and Are You Afraid of the Dark was a weekly staple if you wanted to be able to hold a TV-related conversation with any of your elementary school friends.
But the show isn’t just good for a few, ‘ooh’s and ‘ah’s of memory. It also still holds up today as one of the creepiest terror tales on television. Don’t believe me? Just re-watch some of these scary episodes. I dare ya.
