"Are You Afraid of the Dark?" Tribute Movie Coming This Halloween!

Submitted for the approval of the Midnight Society...


Thanks to Illusionist Studios and Dark Hill Films, '90s Nickelodeon fans have something really exciting (and nostalgic) coming to them this Halloween. For those of you who remember the classic Nickelodeon series, Are You Afraid of the Dark?, you might want to catch up on the show — because we are getting a tribute movie based on the series!

The movie, set to be titled "The Tale of the Ghostly Guest", was written and directed by Nathanial Ingram and Zac Lockard. The directing pair recently reached out to iHorror to talk about the project and share their Indiegogo account to help raise funds to disperse among cast and crew members who helped make the project a reality.

The working title for the Are You Afraid of the Dark? tribute film "The Tale of the Ghostly Guest" is the hard work and dedication from the generation of horror fans who grew up enjoying the ultimate SNICK program for kids. The project of passion is something purely for lovers of this glorious series.



When Can We See 'The Tale of the Ghostly Guest'?

The tribute movie will make its premiere with a public screening at Guthrie Haunts in Riverside, Oklahoma on October 28, 2017, just in time for Halloween no less!. For those of us who aren't in Oklahoma to attend the public screening, the movie will air for free online on October 31, 2017.


It isn't currently known yet whether this is a full-length movie or just a short film, but either way it is something to be excited about. Here is the official synopsis for "The Tale of the Ghostly Guest":

"The Midnight Society gang returns for an all-new tale of terror. Christopher (Catcher Stair) stays a weekend with his Grandpa Jasper (Sidney Flack) only to discover that they are not alone in the house. As secrets emerge, Christopher learns the extra guest has been welcomed to stay."

Can Are You Afraid of the Dark? Still Be Scary In 2017?

Short answer? Yes! Even the opening titles are still scary!:
