‘Are You Afraid of the Dark?’ Writer Promises to Honor Show’s Scary Tone



Don’t worry, Midnight Society. We’re in good hands.

Few people in the entertainment industry had a better year than Gary Dauberman, who penned the horror hits Annabelle: Creation and IT. Both films were MASSIVE successes at the box office, while also being damn good horror movies, turning Dauberman into one of the hottest names in horror at the moment.

As we told you last night, Dauberman has been hired to write and produce a feature film based on the Nickelodeon series Are You Afraid of the Dark? for Paramount Players. We don’t yet know much of anything about the approach Dauberman is taking to the material, but he does promise it will honor the tone of the ’90s series.

The show is about the shared experience of telling stories — especially scary ones. 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,” Dauberman told THR.

Matt Kaplan is also on board to produce.
