If you had the privilege of growing up in the greatest decade of all time — the ’90s — you probably remember the show Are You Afraid of the Dark. Before the spooky series debuted, most kids weren’t in fact, afraid of the dark and no one knew Canadians were so good at scaring the sh*t out of people — fun fact, the show debuted in that little country just north of us before being taken up by Nickelodeon.
Every week, kids tuned in to watch The Midnight Society share awesomely creepy tales around a campfire they had set up deep in the woods (what the hell their parents were doing during all of this, we still don’t know). From goblins to ghosts, old neighbors, crimson clowns and water demons, every episode centered on paranormal tales and urban legends, but since the series ended over 14 years ago, we’ve been looking for a way to traumatize the next generation of kids. Well, it looks like YouTube has answered the call. Every episode ever of the horror anthology series is now available on the video sharing website which means you can now properly educate your own kids on “The Tale of the Ghastly Grinner.”
Just in time for Halloween.
