"Are You Afraid Of The Dark: Season One" - In Stores Now!

Are You Afraid of The Dark? - Popular Series Available on DVD NOW!

Posted by Gord Lacey
4/26/2006

Well, this may be a shocker to some people, but Are You Afraid of The Dark? season 1 is available NOW! Direct Source Special Products released the first season of the show on April 18, but only in Canada. You won't be able to find it in your local Best Buy or Circuit City in the US, but you can still order it from Canada and play it on your DVD player (both countried are region 1). We appologize for not being on top of this release in the first place, especially since Are You Afraid of The Dark? is one of the most popular shows on the site. You can order the set from Amazon.ca for $26.99 CAN (roughly $24 US), but be aware that Amazon is listing shipping times of 5 to 8 weeks (so get your order in now before everyone else does).

Now the next question you have is, "When is there going to be a US release?" We don't know. Direct Source obtained the rights to the first 5 seasons for Canada only, and rights to Canada and the US for the final 2 seasons. They'd love to release the first 5 seasons in the US, but their contract doesn't allow them to do it.

Here's the information they supplied to us for the season 1 set:

With 13 half-hour episodes, Are You Afraid of the Dark? brings scary, spooky and bone-chilling tales to life as told by the members of the Midnight Society. Each night this unique and bold group of teens meets at a secret location in the woods. Attempting to outdo one another, the members of the Society take turns telling the scariest possible stories based, in part, on their real-life experiences. Ghosts, phantons, mysterious occurences, modern vampires, weird and wicked urban legends all make an appearance during the Midnight Society's tales of terror. An X-Files for the tween set, for courageous imaginations, Are You Afraid of the Dark? delivers clever, fast-paced and unforgettable entertainment. It's no mystery why it was one of the most popular shows of the 90s. Enjoy the complete first season now!

Episodes included in the 3 disc (325 mins) set are:

The Phantom Club
Laughing in the Dark
The Lonely Ghost
The Twister Claw
The Hungry Hounds
Super Specs
The Captured Souls
The Nightly Neighbours
The Sorcerer's Apprentice
Jake and the Leprechaun
The Dark Music
The Prom Queen
The Pinball Wizard

The DVD contains audio tracks in English, French and Spanish. There aren't any bonus features, and the suggested price of the set is $29.99 CAN; order it from Amazon.ca for $26.99 CAN. We're also going to have news on some other shows from Direct Source posted in the next few days.

Yay!

I used to watch this show all the time when it was on in the early 90's, but I don't know how well it would hold up with me today.

I agree with all those...

But, My Brother & Me, what a horrible show with terrible actors. There's a reason that show only last one season.

Its strange, I was able to pick up AYAOTD Season 2 at Deep Discount during their last 20% off sale. Ever since I've been hoping that they'd stock the other seasons, but no such luck. Can anyone recommend a good place to order the rest from? I was able to get Season 2 for about $18 shipped after discount, bummer that DD doesn't carry the others.
