My anticipation for this much-hyped adaptation of the classic novel Scary Stories To Tell In The Dark has been a bit muted – if you follow the podcast, and my earlier ramblings – this should come as no surprise to you. But – I have to admit this new trailer – it kicks some pretty major ass. Look for yourself.
August 9th will bring the goods. Here’s your official synopsis from the studio:
“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.”
August 9th – in case you didn’t read it above. This one is looking good!
