Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark documentary

For a couple years, an adaptation of the children’s horror book Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark has been in the works. Back in 2013, Saw scribes Patrick Melton and Marcus Dunston were set to write the screenplay, but last year John August was brought on board to start the project over from square one. Since then, we haven’t heard anything about the project.

But while we wait for that project to move forward, we’ll be able to dive into Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark in a different way. Filmmaker Cody Meirick has been working on a documentary, aptly called Scary Stories, that will dive into the history and legacy of the book and the impact it had on the generation who fell in love with the terrifying gothic tales and illustrations within, haunting their dreams so much that later versions of the original book were made significantly less scary.

You can get a taste of what the doc will offer in the Scary Stories trailer after the jump! Read More »
