The second trailer for the upcoming SCARY STORIES TO TELL IN THE DARK finally dropped and it looks good. In fact, it has me more excited than the first trailer that was released. Apparently, I’m the only person in North America who hasn’t read the classic stories so I’m coming into all of this brand new. The film’s official synopsis is as follows:
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 tome.
Directed by André Øvredal and produced by Guillermo del Toro, SCARY STORIES TO TELL IN THE DARK is slated for theaters August 9th.
