Produced by Guillermo del Toro (THE SHAPE OF WATER, PAN’S LABYRINTH) and directed by André Øvredal (THE AUTOPSY OF JANE DOE, TROLL HUNTER), SCARY STORIES TO TELL IN THE DARK is based on the popular children’s books written by Alvin Schwartz and illustrated by Stephen Gammell. It’s l968 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 tome.
