  • Trivia

    • Spoiler:According to the movie's director, M. Night Shyamalan, "The Sixth Sense" (which is known primarily for its shocking 'twist' ending) was partly inspired by this episode of "Are You Afraid of the Dark?" In this episode of AYAOTD, the leading male character is ignored by others throughout the episode, yet is unaware that he is dead until the episode's final moments. The moment of realization comes when he sees his sister looking at a newspaper which features a story about his death.
