Are You Afraid of the Dark?



I have been wanting to do a post on AYAOTD for a long time. My friends and I all grew up watching the show as young kids remembering how scary we all felt when ghosts would appear or when scary monsters would show up. Years later when we all met in High School, we talked about how much we used to miss growing up in the 90's and how much we missed our favorite TV shows including: Doug, Hey Arnold, The Amanda Show, All That, etc... and of course the one and only: Are You Afraid of the Dark?

After a while, we started to turn our get-together's into 90's nights where we'd watch silly episodes of AYAOTD, Goosebumps, and plenty of other cheesy 90's shows and movies. Not only is watching AYAOTD nostalgic, but now it's extremely laughable, as predicted. We'll laugh at everything in the entire production from the acting, writing, costumes, sets, to the overall direction and of course, the special effects.

An amazing example of AYAOTD's brilliant special effects:

Recently one of my friends sent me a link to Beauch87's YouTube Channel which includes plenty of summaries of classic AYAOTD episodes, here's one of his hilarious summaries:

This is a ridiculous parody of AYAOTD that my friends and I made in our film class last year. Enjoy the cliché elements!
