Morbidly Beautiful

Your Home for Horror


While genre fans tune in to the “Are You Afraid of the Dark” reboot, Rick and Nik look back fondly on two more episodes of the original 90s sensation.

This week, Rick and Nik dress up to take their lovely friend and guest host, Cassidy, to a virtual Prom Night filled with Urban Legends, monsters in the dark and a man who is very upset that 1992 is considered a long time ago. 


Join filmmakers Richard Tanner and Nik Uttam as they look back fondly on every episode of the hit 90’s show from Nickelodeon that influenced so many young horror fans: ARE YOU AFRAID OF THE DARK?

Richard Tanner is an award-winning writer, director, and regular Morbidly Beautiful contributor. He is also the owner of A Buck Short Productions. Nik Uttam is a filmmaker and podcaster that has seen every movie from the 80s…twice. He is an editor and cinematographer who started the company Reel Independent Productions to get a better reach into the horror world.

Our special guest, Cassidy, is an actress, known for The Originals, Legacy and Office Christmas Party.

Follow Rick and Nik every Thursday right here on as they join The Midnight Society for thrills and chills that will warm your heart and make your blood run cold! 

Episode 7: The Tale of the Dark Music and the Prom Queen (47 min)

Gather round campers and take a seat on the Big Orange Couch this week to hear more from the Campfire! Rick, Nik and special guest Cassidy Mazzi, take on The Tale of the Dark Music (Season 1, Episode 11: Original Air Date: October 24th, 1992) and The Tale of the Prom Queen  (Season 1, Episode 12 Original Air Date: November 7th, 1992).

In The Tale of the Dark Music, Andy Carr moves to a new neighborhood where life, local bullies and an old basement prove to me more than he can handle… that is until he finds the right music to set the mood.

Richard and Cassidy square off in a fight between 20 somethings and 30 somethings and how 1992 isn’t that long ago. Richard clearly loses.

In The Tale of the Prom Queen, Two boys befriend a young woman where they encourage her to join them in search of a legend that comes every year.

The Counselors talk about urban legends and their stopping point as far as the occult goes.  Apparently boats and ghosts is a bit too much for some.

Join us on this episode as we deal with getting old, first time watches and this little powder that makes all the stories spooky called Midnight Dust.
