Summon the Midnight Society! Are You Afraid of the Dark? coming to the big screen

It man Gary Dauberman is writing and producing a big-screen adaptation of Nickelodeon’s Are You Afraid of the Dark? for Paramount Pictures.

The early-‘90s tween horror anthology TV series was a staple of SNICK, or Saturday Night Nickelodeon, and along with Clarissa Explains It All, Doug, The Adventures of Pete and Pete, All That and other SNICK shows can still be found from time to time on weekend Teen Nick lineups.

“The show is about the shared experience of telling stories — especially scary ones,” Dauberman told The Hollywood Reporter. “We’re going to celebrate that with this movie and honor the darker, scarier tone of the show, which was really groundbreaking for Nickelodeon at the time. I hope the Midnight Society approves.”

In Are You Afraid of the Dark, The Midnight Society was a club of teens who gathered around a campfire somewhere deep in the woods to try and outdo each other with creepy tales.

Dauberman is the co-writer of the recent big-screen adaptation of Stephen King’s It and writer of Annabelle: Creation who is also also serving as executive producer for The Nun, a spinoff of the highly successful Conjuring films.
