Well I wasn’t, but now I am thanks!
Full disclosure. I did not watch Are You Afraid of the Dark? when I was a kid, and I want to say it would have probably scared the *bleep out of me if I had. So, I decided, since I am an adult, to watch the new Are You Afraid of the Dark? DVD. I figured I am old enough now it probably wouldn’t be scary and one of the main character’s names is Rachel so it has to be good right? Haha! Well, I rediscovered something about myself while watching the new DVD. I am a wuss when it comes to scary movies/shows. (But for some reason I love watching them. Haha!) If you are a fan of the show Are You Afraid of the Dark? then keep reading to find out when this new DVD is releasing and the special features it comes with.
Disclosure: My family and I were gifted a copy of Are You Afraid of the Dark? from Nickelodeon and Paramount Home Entertainment all thoughts and opinions are my own.
