The long awaited film adaptation of Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark
looks to recapture all the frightening imagery found in the books.
Now, the film’s official Twitter, Instangram and Facebook accounts has teased that, “This week will be scary,” along with an all-new movie poster. This means that first trailer will appear in a few days!
The Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark book series was first published during the 1980s, written / adapted from folklore by Alvin Schwartz and gorily illustrated by Stephen Gammell. The film follows a group of young teens who must solve the mystery surrounding the sudden and macabre deaths in their small town.
The movie will be directed by André Ovredal and is co-written by Daniel and Kevin Hageman along with Guillermo del Toro, who provided the screen story (and is also the producer of the film).
Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark will star Zoe Margaret Colletti, Austin Abrams, Gabriel Rush, Michael Garza, Austin Zajur, Dean Norris, Gil Bellows, Lorraine Toussaint and Natalie Ganzhorn.
Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark will open on August 9, 2019 in the US, in the Czech Republic, Slovakia and Romania on August 16, and in Hungary on November 28.
