Nickelodeon

It isn't just wild nostalgia that keeps you returning to the show, because, as the creepiest episodes of Are You Afraid Of The Dark prove, it's also the quality of its spooky storytelling. Many of the monsters, villains, twists, and scary moments of the show's seasons have stayed with fans over the years likely due to the huge impact they likely left on our fragile child minds. And though not every episode is as scary as we remember, there are still some that manage to pack a creepy punch when we re-watch them as adults.

But, no matter which one it is, with an Are You Afraid Of The Dark movie coming our way in Oct. 2019, you'll definitely want to start brushing up on your knowledge of the show well in advance.
