Scary Stories To Tell In The Dark

A new trailer for Scary Stories has been released by October Coast. The movie is a documentary about writer Alvin Schwartz and illustrator Stephen Gammell‘s beloved children’s horror book series Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark.

You can find much more info on the Scary Stories documentary and give the new trailer a watch below.

SYNOPSIS:

Scary Stories, the highly anticipated documentary about Alvin Schwartz’ iconic Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark book series, will debut in select theaters beginning April 26 via Wild Eye Releasing.

Explore the history of one of the most controversial works of modern children’s literature: The best selling teen classic Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark, which scared a generation of young readers and became one of the most banned books of modern times. Scary Stories creates both the ultimate celebration and dissertation of this iconic piece of horror literature.

Following the limited theatrical release – which includes Los Angeles, New Orleans, Columbus, and Texas – Scary Stories will be available on VOD May 7 with a DVD release set for July 16.

Cody Meirick’s film features more than 40 interviews, from family members of author Alvin Schwartz, to fellow children’s book horror authors like R.L. Stine (Goosebumps) and Q.L. Pearce, to folklorists, artists and fans discussing the impact that the books have had on both themselves as well as the culture at large. The documentary also explores the various times in which the books were banned or targeted by parent and religious groups as ‘satanic’ or otherwise too macabre for its targeted teen scholastic audience.

Penned by Schwartz and illustrated by Stephen Gammell, Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark is a three-volume series consisting of short horror stories for pre-teens and children that were adapted from American folklore and urban legends. Because of some of the violent illustrations and the subject matter, parent groups, religious organizations and school boards had the books pulled from libraries and schools at various times. A feature film adaptation of the books, produced by horror icon Guillermo del Toro, is due in theaters this summer.

The books have been much talked about lately thanks to that feature adaptation being produced by del Toro and directed by André Øvredal. Click right here to find a trailer, Super Bowl spots, and more for that movie if you’ve missed anything.

If you’ve been aware of the Scary Stories doc for a while now, the new trailer may not offer you much new. It’s basically a combination of previously released trailers, which you can also find below for anyone interested in checking those out.
