Childhood Nightmare Inspo ‘Are You Afraid Of The Dark?’ Is Being Made Into A Movie
Good news 90’s kids! Your fave spooky TV show, Nickelodeon’s Are You Afraid of the Dark? is being made into a movie, expected to be released in 2019.
Even better, it’s expected to be shit-ya-dacks scary. The writer behind ‘It’, Gary Dauberman will write and produce the film, so if you’re a life-long member of the Midnight Society, get excited!
The Canadian TV series aired on Nickelodeon in the 90s and featured a group of teens trading terrifying (and often camp as hell) tales around a fire. It even starred the likes of Ryan Gosling and Neve Campbell as child actors, so you know it’s a gift that keeps on giving.
Dauberman told The Hollywood Reporter.
“The show is about the shared experience of telling stories — especially scary ones. We’re going to celebrate that with this movie and honor the darker, scarier tone of the show, which was really groundbreaking for Nickelodeon at the time. I hope the Midnight Society approves,”
We’ll be waiting in suspense for a little while though. The movie is expected to hit theatres in time for Halloween on October 11, 2019.
