Paramount’s upcoming movie adaptation of the 90s Nickelodeon series ‘Are You Afraid of the Dark?’ will not include any iconic characters. This according to new details about the film project. ‘Are You Afraid of the Dark?’ was a horror anthology series that ran on Nickelodeon through the 1990s and featured regular characters such as ‘Dr. Vink, Mr. Sardo, and many others. Despite airing on a kids network the series was surprisingly able to achieve the scare factor without any over the top gruesome displays of violence.
The film’s writer Gary Dauberman explained in a recent interview with Slash Film, that the movie won’t adapt any TV episodes, and will instead tell a completely original story. Dauberman stresses in the same interview that he tried not to “age [the story] down too much,” and tried to honor the legacy of the original series by not going light on the scares. As Dauberman points out, ‘Are You Afraid of the Dark?’ often told tales that didn’t end with the characters living happily ever after. Sometimes the monsters won, and sometimes the protagonist ended up suffering a truly cruel fate.
