Scary Stories To Tell In The Dark

Scary Stories To Tell In The Dark

Cast: Zoe Colletti, Michael Garza, Gabriel Rush, Austin Abrams, Dean Norris, Gil Bellows, Lorraine Toussaint
Distributor: Lionsgate
Rated PG-13 | Minutes: 108
Release Date: August 9, 2019

As a kid, I thoroughly enjoyed Scary Stories To Tell In The Dark from author Alvin Schwartz and illustrator Stephen Gammell. The way that the creepy writing married with the bone-chilling imagery carved out my love for horror at a very young age. These pictures weren’t easy to look at, either. But as disturbing as they are, they were fascinating pieces of work. The way that the blacks and grays worked in unison against a white background evoked a wide range of emotions from fear to intrigue. And the same can be said for the writing, which was simple and yet did not skimp on any of the gory details. All of it just pulled you into a world that is both frightening and yet you want to visit.

Scary Stories To Tell In The Dark

Many people, myself included, were deeply scarred by author Alvin Schwartz‘s horror book series Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark, especially with artist Stephen Gammell‘s original illustrations. Recently a movie adaptation of the books has been in development, and earlier this year it was announced that Guillermo del Toro was now working on it with the possibility of even directing it himself.

It will likely be a bit before get a better idea of where the movie is going. So for now, here’s a video to hold you over. The video is of an artist creating a 3D chalk re-creation of one of Gammell’s drawings. It’s a quick video for sure, but still cool to see.

Check out the video below.

Superman: The Atomic Age Sundays, Vol. 1 review

Superman: The Atomic Age Sundays, Vol. 1 (1949-1953)
Hardcover
Superman created by Jerry Siegel and Joe Schuster
Scripts by Alvin Schwartz
Art by Wayne Boring
IDW Publishing
Release Date: July 15, 2015
Cover Price: $49.99

First off, let me get one thing straight. I’m no fan of The Man of Steel. That’s right, not loving Big Blue. Now, having said that, I will give credit where it is due; he is an icon and well-loved the world over. But I like to get outside my comfort zone as often as possible and how better to do that than to review a character I don’t really enjoy reading. Therefore, I am happy to review Superman: The Atomic Age Sundays, Vol. 1 (1949-1953).

This hardbound compilation is completely composed of never before reprinted Sunday comics. The time span is October 23, 1949 through March 15, 1953. Looking back on comics as they were presented over six decades ago is akin to staring into the history of America. We not only get a glimpse of the fears and challenges of life back then but we get to look at how less convoluted the world was at that time. Disregarding nostalgia for what it is, the strip presents the reader with a time capsule of sorts, in comic form and in that respect, this book produces something not easily replicated.

Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark by Alvin Schwartz and Stephen Gammell

Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark by Alvin Schwartz and Stephen Gammell

Did you ever read Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark as a kid, leading to much regret as a mostly sleepless or nightmare-laced night followed? Yeah, me too. Me too.

The collection of short horror tales by Alvin Schwartz spanned three books, and the unsettling illustrations (so long as you get the older books with art by Stephen Gammell, NOT the disgraceful newer ones I just found out exist) alone were enough to send ice rushing through your veins. Now someone wants to bring these terrors to life.

It’s been announced that CBS Films has grabbed onto the project after a pitch by Patrick Melton and Marcus Dunstan.
