Kevin Pedersen joins Jen this week to talk about children’s horror. From Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark, to Are You Afraid of the Dark?, to Goosebumps, there was no shortage of creepy entertainment aimed specifically at kids in the ’80s and early ’90s, but do children today have as many options when they’re looking for a fright? And what exactly makes a scary story scary anyway? One thing’s for sure: illustrations by Stephen Gammell certainly don’t hurt.
