When a was 8 maybe 9 years old (I don't remember the exact age but I know I was younger than 10) my brother, my mom, and I would sit in our living room with the lights off and watch SNICK, the Saturday night block of television programs on Nickelodeon. It'd start out with All That and some other shows but then it would always end with Are You Afraid of the Dark? a show that really, truly, creeped me out as a little boy.
But if I were to watch it now, I'd feel embarrassed that I was afraid of it in the first place. I mean, the 90s were a weird time where absolutely everything was cheesy and more than just a little bit campy. If you, like me, are an older human/hamster/ghost and wondered what that show would look like; SneakyBoy has you covered.
They recently remade the intro to the show and it captures the exact feeling I felt when I first watched the show as a tiny-baby-boy. The weird VHS/found footage nature of some of the shots really adds to the creepiness.
And, no, I'm not entirely scared or worried or afraid because of this remake but I could see how this would maybe hit that same demographic of kids if Nickelodeon decided to get SneakyBoy to reboot their series.
One of the good things about aging is that I'm not the only one. And some of the other people who are aging along with me are much more talented and creative than I will ever be. Which means I get to experience all the remakes they produce/film while having a personal history with the source material. And it definitely was the case for this remake.

This is awesome!!!! I loved this series so much when I was a kid XD @BeannachtOraibh @ChosenKnight do you remember this?
@BeannachtOraibh Yeah, definitely. I remember being actually and honestly afraid to watch the show. I'm kind of a scaredy-cat when it comes to anything horror-related though, haha. I do remember loving that kind of fear. @shannonl5 I try not to remember some of the stories. A lot of them used to give me weird nightmares, hahaha
@BeannachtOraibh that's so true though. Goosebumps was a little too cheesy for my tastes even back then. And sometimes it felt like they were just trying keep up with AYAotD? you know

That would be awesome! It was so much better than Goosebumps, imo. Though GB had its charm, it didn't really hold a match to AYAotD?
@BeannachtOraibh, Hey maybe it isn't too late to fulfill that dream. Maybe Nickleodeon will reboot the show because of this fan video!
