In the latest installment of the revived “Are You Afraid of the Dark?” series titled “Ghost Island,” a group of teenagers go on what they thought to be a fun summer vacation, only to discover hidden evils lurking on their resort island. I spoke to Luca Padovan, Chase Hurstfield, Telci Huynh and Julian Curtis on their characters and their experience acting in the horror genre.

Based on the popular 1990s series, the third season debuted a two-hour episode on July 30 on Nickelodeon. The remaining episodes of the limited series aired Aug. 6 and Aug. 13.
