There was one simple question that haunted us through our childhoods, and honestly still sends a shiver up our spine to this day. "Are You Afraid Of The Dark?" was one of our favorite shows, but also the source of almost all of our nightmares.
It was a Nickelodeon show that ran from 1992-1996, and in its short run managed to gain quite a following. The spooky stories that they told still haunt us to this day, but honestly, we want more.
The teens in the show were all a part of 'The Midnight Society', where they would gather around a campfire to share the scariest stories they heard. They would start each story by saying "submitted for the approval of the Midnight Society, I call this story [the name of the episode]" before they would throw that very spooky "midnight dust" on the camp fire.
Obviously, each story was unique and terrifying in its own way, but something about the way it was told was an important part. There were a lot of shows trying to scare us when we were little, whether it was Goosebumps, Tales From The Crypt, or Freaky Stories, but none were quite as good as Are You Afraid Of The Dark?.
