I've been a horror nut ever since I was very young and one of the first books I read was "Scary Stories To Tell In The Dark." I got the book before they did a recall of sorts and changed all of the illustrations in the book. Because lets face it, those illustrations were nightmarish and how myself or any kid for that matter didn't need therapy is a blessing. I have a soft spot for the book and I never thought I'd see it as a movie.
The movie is coming out soon. Guillermo del Toro is producing, which gives me good vibes. However, I am not a fan of a storyline that ties all the stories together. This would have probably worked better as a TV anthology series, in the vein of "Black Mirror." I think the wrap around plot will take away from the adaptation of the stories themselves, and that will be slightly infuriating. With that said, they've got the illustrations down perfect. There is some genuine creepiness in the trailer. I am just not completely sold on it, and that kind of breaks my heart a bit.
