First Trailer For ‘Scary Stories To Tell In The Dark’ Released

2 Min Read

Fans of scary stories will not have to wait until Halloween (or October) to get their fix of chilling tales. On August 9, the highly anticipated Scary Stories To Tell In The Dark by Academy Award winner Guillermo del Toro will be released in cinemas.

Directed by André Øvredal, the film is an adaptation of the children’s book series of the same name by Alvin Schwartz. These stories borrowed heavily from urban legends and folklore all around and created a canon of stories that are inspiration to many current horror movies and television series.

The film will be set in a small town called Mill Rest, where a group of children discover the lore created by Sarah Bellow, the daughter of a family residing in a mansion in town. The family created a collection of stories that are starting to become too real for the children.

Zoe Colletti, Michael Garza, Austin Abrams, Gabriel Rush, Dean Norris, Austin Zajur and Natalie Ganzhorn are featured in the film.

In the trailer, we can already see an abundance of “scary story” tropes, ranging from a scarecrow to a creepy clown and of course that abandoned mansion that you should definitely not check out in the middle of night while armed only with a baseball bat. But we enjoy being scared and, judging from the trailer, we definitely will enjoy this film!

Released in cinemas August 9, you can check out the trailer now for Scary Stories To Tell In The Dark below!
