An All-Day Halloween Marathon of Fun-Sized Frights

October isn’t merely a month, it’s an energy. A most macabre sensation that permeates from its 31st day, and inspires not visions of sugarplums, but of ghastly jack-o’-lantern grins, rattling bones, cobwebbed corridors, and—yes—candy. It’s an energy—a state of mind—we call… Halloween.

As an 80s and 90s kid with cable, I inevitably watched tons of Nickelodeon. In particular, I was a fiend for their game shows: Double Dare to start, and then the 90s onslaught of programs like Guts and Nick Arcade. And if there’s one thing I know about those shows, it’s that I could have done everything on them perfectly.

I was an anxious kid growing up. I worried about improbable scenarios, invisible threats, and even the fates of characters on TV. So when Are You Afraid of the Dark? came on each weekday evening with its spooky opening music, I usually scrambled to shut off the TV or switch to playing The Rocketeer on my Super Nintendo—it was the 90s, you were stuck with what was airing on TV and whatever garbage videogame you asked your parents to get for your birthday based on the cover art.
