Bummer: Are You Afraid of the Dark? no longer has a release date

I don't know about you but I was really looking forward to checking out Paramount's upcoming feature film adaptation of the classic Nickelodeon kid-horror anthology ARE YOU AFRAID OF THE DARK? from writer Gary Dauberman (IT) and director DJ Caruso (THE DISAPPOINTMENTS ROOM). But now it looks like the movie has been pushed from its planned October 4th, 2019 release date and off Paramount's 2019 schedule altogether.


This news comes to us from Box Office over on Twitter who writes:

ARE YOU AFRAID OF THE DARK?, previously slated for 10/4/19, now has no release date

Again, this is a major bummer. Especially considering that now we don't know what's up with Nickelodeon's planned small screen revival of the original series, which we told you guys about last month. The miniseries revival was evidently being timed to coincide with the movie's October release, but now? Who knows. We'll let you know as soon as we hear more. Until then, here's ARE YOU AFRAID OF THE DARK's synopsis:

This kids anthology series recounts ghost stories told by the young members of the Midnight Society as they gather around a campfire. Each episode opens with members of the Midnight Society at their secret spot in the woods, where they prepare their fire and the night's storyteller announces the title of the his or her offering. However, the cameras soon leave the storyteller and switch to the tale being told.

Are you a fan of the series? If so what do you think was the scariest episode? For me, it's "The Tale of Laughing in the Dark" with the runners-up being "The Tale of the Dead Man's Float", "The Tale of Old Man Corcoran" and "The Tale of the Midnight Madness" to name a few. What do you think? Let us know below! Then make sure to adjust your calendars as ARE YOU AFRAID OF THE DARK? now hits... sometime in the future... we hope.
