Are You Afraid of the Dark?


Are You Afraid of the Dark?
Are You Afraid of the Dark? revolves around a group of teenagers who refer to themselves as "The Midnight Society". Every week, at a secret location in the woods, one member would tell a scary story to the group. The themes of the stories usually revolve around a variety of paranormal phenomena such as ghosts, goblins, magic, haunted houses, magical curses, aliens, witches and the like coming into contact with normal teenagers. Sources of these tales vary in different ways; many are adaptations of fairytales, short stories and urban legends. For example, "The Tale of the Twisted Claw" is considered to be an adaptation of W.W. Jacobs' legendary short story, "The Monkey's Paw".
