Episode 11: The Tale of the Carnival of Doom (Reboot)(64 min)

This week, Rick and Nik geek out at the greatness that is the Are You Afraid of the Dark? Reboot! They took the time to watch all 3 parts to the special event entitled “The Tale of the Carnival of Doom”.

This three-part, self-contained limited series is about the newest member of the Midnight Society, her first scary tale, and what happens to the group when the terrifying events of her story starts to actually happen in their small town.  That’s inception, guys!  We finally get to see the Midnight Society in action.

Richard and Nik chat late at night for this two and a half hour event, and they love every minute of it — even though Richard hasn’t slept in a week and may have done this episode from bed…whispering…ever so slightly.

Join us on this episode to catch all of the horror movie references and a truly deep look at this soon to be cult classic of modern Nickelodeon.
