Are You Afraid of the Dark?
- 10 Seasons
The Canadian/American teenage horror/fantasy series "Are you Afraid of the Dark?" follows a group of friends who call themselves "The Midnight Society." These friends meet around a campfire in the woods every week to tell each other horror stories. Viewers then get to see the story acted out in front of them as the members of The Midnight Society narrate them. These stories include anything from vampires, goblins, and ghosts to wizards, dragons, and leprechauns, and don't always conclude with happy endings. Each meeting of The Midnight Society begins with one of its members tossing a handful of midnight dust into the campfire, which causes the fire to grow and produce strange white smoke. The Midnight Society member then begins his or her tale of horror. At the episode's conclusion, another member throws a bucket of water onto the campfire and declares that the meeting of The Midnight Society is now closed.
