Scary Stories To Tell In The Dark is a collection of creepy folk tales collected and retold by Alvin Schwartz, and is very popular among both children and adults. The full collection consists of three books full of creepy tales, and creepier images by Stephen Gammell.
Last year we told you the movie adaptation was in the pipeline- this is very exciting news for horror fans, and fans of the original books. 2019’s Superbowl included some excellent teaser trailers for Guillermo del Toro’s project and really sets the tone for the movie. It looks to be as freaky as the book’s original illustrations, sprinkled with del Toro magic!
Check out the trailers below… Don’t have nightmares…
“It’s 1968 in America. Change is blowing in the wind…but seemingly far removed from the unrest in the cities is the small town of Mill Valley where for generations, the shadow of the Bellows family has loomed large. It is in their mansion on the edge of town that Sarah, a young girl with horrible secrets, turned her tortured life into a series of scary stories, written in a book that has transcended time-stories that have a way of becoming all too real for a group of teenagers who discover Sarah’s terrifying tome.”
The movie is set to be released on the 9th of August and is directed by André Øvredal. The cast includes Zoe Colletti as Stella Nicholls, Michael Garza as Ramón Morales, Austin Abrams as Tommy Milner, Gabriel Rush as Auggie Hilderbrandt, Austin Zajur as Chuck Steinberg, and Natalie Ganzhorn as Ruth Steinburg.
Good Omens will air on Amazon Prime Video on 31st May 2019, announced just last week along with the opening credits and some news from the adaptation, and now fans will be able to get their hands on two companion books in time for release.
