The reboot of the Nickelodeon TV series Are You Afraid Of The Dark? just got an official trailer and it doesn't shy away from the scare factor. The teaser immediately pits the new Midnight Society against the creepy people working at the Carnival of Doom.
The trailer opens with one member of the Midnight Society asking, "Do you like scary stories?" There's a montage of creepy images before they decide that the new girl named Rachel should go ahead and tell them a tale by the campfire. Rachel seems uncertain at first but she eventually submits her story, calling it The Carnival of Doom.
All seems fine until a teacher announces that there's a carnival coming to town and it's just like what Rachel has described in her story. It doesn't take long before the Midnight Society realizes that they have to stop the carnival people from wreaking havoc all over town.
It's a terrifying trailer that seems to give the old Are You Afraid Of The Dark? an even darker feel. For one, there's a clown wielding a chainsaw and zombies appearing from a foggy pool. Can the Midnight Society defeat the Carnival of Doom? We'll find out for sure next month.
Are You Afraid Of The Dark? is a limited miniseries that stars Lyliana Wray as Rachel, Miya Cech as Akiko, Tamara Smart as Louise, Jeremy Ray Taylor as Graham, and Sam Ashe Arnold as Gavin as the new Midnight Society. They will be joined by Rafael Casal as Mr. Tophat, the Carnival of Doom’s ringmaster.
The show will air on Nickelodeon on October 11.
