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 was produced by Guillermo del Toro and directed by André Øvredal (The Autopsy of Jane Doe). The script was written by Dan & Kevin Hageman (Trollhunters) from a story by del Toro. It is based on the book series by Alvin Schwartz. Zoe Colletti, Gabriel Rush, Austin Abrams, Austin Zajur, Natalie Ganzhorn, Dean Norris and Javier Botet star.
The movie opens in theaters on August 9th.
