Are You Afraid of the Dark DVD Review & Giveaway

 


Re-imagined for a new generation, Nickelodeon’s all-new version of ‘90’s kids’ cult classic Are You Afraid of the Dark? arrives on DVD. The three-part limited series follows members of an entirely new Midnight Society, who tell a terrifying tale of the Carnival of Doom and its evil ringmaster Mr. Top Hat, only to witness the shocking story come frightfully to life and prepare for an adventure beyond their wildest nightmares.


 


MY REVIEW

Fall is right around the corner and as the weather gets chilly and the leaves start to fall from the trees, that means one thing, spooky season is near! My family and I absolutley love Halloween and all that comes with it. Being a kid that was born in the 80's and raised in the 90's, there were lots of spooky shows that we would watch, from Tales from the Crypt to Goosebumps, one show that stuck out was Are You Afraid of the Dark. When the Midnight Society got together to share their spooky stories, we listened and watched and loved every bit of it. 


When I first heard they were remaking the show I was very excited. I watched this show faithfully when I was younger, so I had high expectations and I was not disappointed. My kids and I tuned in to watch the remake on Nickelodeon last year and we loved it. When we got the opportunity to receive the limited edition series, that was released on DVD August 25th, I gladly accepted so that we could add the show to our Halloween movie collection. What I loved about the remake was how great a job they did with introducing the newest members of The Midnight Society, keeping it updated to fit with this generation, while also honouring the original. Mr. Tophat was a great villian as we were being told the story of the Carnival of Doom. It leaves you wanting more and my kids and I are excited that there will be more episodes coming soon. 


What it also left me with is wanting to watch some of the original shows again and showing my kids,which I've found thanks to the official Are You Afraid of the Dark Youtube channel that includes full episodes of the show we loved to watch as kids. Are You Afraid of the Dark is now available on DVD in stores now!
