Submitted for the approval of the Midnight Society, we call this story "Our Favorite Clips From 'Are You Afraid Of The Dark?'"
A spoiled rich kid and his babysitter set off to his aunt's house. Melissa Joan Hart guest stars in this spooky tale that begins the way all great ghost stories do: with mysterious footprints in the mud.
When Melissa's friend Susan mysteriously disappears, she finds out that she's been turned into a porcelain doll. They're both trapped in the dollhouse and unsure whether or not the curse can be reversed. Excuse us while we put our childhood toys back in their boxes…
As if we need to explain why clowns are actually the scariest things on earth, when Josh bets he can steal the nose of Zeebo the Clown, the creepy jester goes after him. A-DUH!
Honestly, is there anything less appealing than an old hospital at night? After volunteering for the night shift, Amanda learns there's a vampire on the loose, and proceeds to confirm our fear that never needed to be confirmed in the first place.
Ghost children, pleading messages, and blood-curdling screams are standard AYAOTD fare. The writing's on the wall. Literally!
