Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark, the collection of horror stories by Alvin Schwartz, is one of the most terrifying and controversial children’s book to haunt library shelves. If you need any evidence of that, just look back at the myriad of stories about school libraries trying to ban the books. That’s largely thanks to the inky illustrations by Stephen Gammell, which will be brought to life in the upcoming big screen adaptation produced by Guillermo del Toro (watch the trailer here).
Alongside the upcoming film, the documentary Scary Stories will take a look back at the history and legacy of the book series that has haunted the dreams of children for decades. Watch the Scary Stories documentary trailer below to get a glimpse. Read More »
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.
