Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark is an upcoming film produced by Guillermo del Toro. The film soundtrack will feature a cover of Donovan’s 1966 folk-rock hit “Season of the Witch.”, sang by Lana Del Ray. A snippet of the cover can be heard in the film’s latest trailer (below), and the song’s full debut will coincide with the movie’s theatrical release this Friday 9th of August.
Del Toro (Pan’s Labyrinth, Shape of Water) said:
“I have admired Lana’s music for a while now and felt in my gut that she would run with ‘Season of the Witch’ — that she would use her alchemy to transform it. She is a great artist and has been an amazing partner with us in this adventure. It is an honour for me to have met her.”
The creepy new trailer, with Del Ray’s spooky cover, are featured below.
The movie is released on the 9th of August.
