It’s been a busy week for Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark. Teaser products have been released in the past five days and herein lies a complete list. I’m excited about this work because of the talents involved in bringing the work of Alvin Schwartz to life. First off, Dan and Kevin Hageman (Tales of Arcadia: Trollhunters, LEGO Ninjago) wrote the screenplay based on the treatment by Guillermo del Toro, Patrick Melton and Marcus Dunstan. Also, André Øvredal (Trollhunter) is directing.

Plus, the teaser trailer shows how the terror comes together. A book is discovered, and in what Sarah Billard penned, the creatures found her stories come alive. While the concept feels similar to Goosebumps, this take is more on authentic paranormal instances than Nickelodeon style. Perhaps that tome is worse than The Necronomicon from H.P. Lovecraft‘s world!

This movie is headed to the big screen August 9th, and the release of the trailer shows all is not good in the small town of Mill Valley. The Red Spot and Pale Lady images show what the Bellows family may have to face!

Official Synopsis:

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 home.
