The 90’s were an amazing time to be a kid. That decade gave us Cartoon Network, Nickelodeon, Fox Kids and the golden age of Disney. Not to mention some of the most memorable and iconic games, movies and TV shows.
Horror-wise there weren’t any overly-spectacular movies, since CGI was still pretty bad and buckets of blood and gore are only scary in the first 5-10 movies. TV scenes had much better luck in these genres with the X-Files, Twin Peaks, Goosebumps, Tales from the Crypt and the like. This also includes some of the boldest cartoons of that era.
Stone statues coming to life after the sun goes down was the idea that scared me quite a bit as a kid. Even vampires weren’t as creepy, as realizing that the statue behind your back can grab you and you’re done. ‘Gargoyles’ was and still is an incredibly solid piece of Disney entertainment that has been cancelled too soon. After only 3 seasons ‘Gargoyles’ delivered some of the most iconic characters on par with Power Rangers, X-Men and even Spider-Man. It’s a super-fun series about adventures, honor and betrayal, wrapped up in a nice gothic-themed action-packed animation bundle. The series had a few animated features and even got its own comic title. 11/10 I highly recommend picking it up for your kids (or yourself).
