When I was little Saturday nights were spent huddled in front of the t.v watching SNICK. And for me SNICK was all about being able to see one show; Are You Afraid of the Dark? I'm not talking about the episodes in the late 90's where Tucker was the head of the Midnight Society. Cause lets face it by that time the show was getting pretty lame. I'm talking about when his brother Gary was the head of the society in the early 90's. Those were the never miss episodes. Of course looking back on the show now none of it is scary. But hey as a kid these stories could keep you up at night. One of my favorite stories The Tale of Watcher's Woods became a story we would tell when we went camping. And the creepy "I'm watching you." whisperer was a staple way of scaring someone on the way to the bathrooms at night.
I thought a lot about what I wanted to do on here for Halloween this year. Instead of just making another edit that said something bland like Happy Halloween. I came up with the idea of posting an episode of the show that started my love for scary stories. And what better episode to post then the story I know the best? So like they say on the show, submitted for the approval of the Midnight Society. I call this story; The Tale of Watcher's Woods.
