A few stories from Alvin’s stories are brought together to form one story. Those who did not read the stories during childhood, the trailer is very scary. With nightmares coming alive, the story of the film revolves around a group of teenage friends. They visit a supposedly haunted house for thrills and discover a book of scary stories written long ago by a girl. The stories begin to come alive for each of them.

Harold the Scarecrow figures prominently in the trailer and its design is accurately represented in the illustrations by Stephen Gammell. The Toe monster, Pale Lady and others also make their presence felt. The visuals of the creatures are also impressive and it is something del Toro must have made sure. He loves his monsters.

The official synopsis of the film states, “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.”

Scary Stories to tell in the Dark is slated for an August 9 release.
