Scary Stories To Tell In The Dark

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

Alvin Schwartz‘s Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark may have been presented as a collection of children’s horror stories that is rooted in folklore and urban legend, but it is the basis of why those same kids who read all three volumes are fans of the horror genre now. I remember reading at least one book when I was a kid, but I’d never thought they would be able to turn all of that into a film.

Now, CBS Films will be releasing an adaptation of the same name. In it, a group of young people attempt to solve a mystery that involves a series of spectacularly horrific deaths in their small hometown. Check out the first look at Scary Stories To Tell In The Dark here below.

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

We first heard about a movie based on Alvin Schwartz‘s Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark horror book series back in 2013, with Saw writers Patrick Melton and Marcus Dunstan working on the project. We then heard in 2014 that John August, a writer on Tim Burton’s Big Fish, Corpse Bride, Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, Dark Shadows, and Frankenweenie, was hired to work on the script.

If you grew up reading the books, you know how awesome the movie (or movies) could be if done right. Especially if you read the books with the unforgettable nightmare fuel illustrations of artist Stephen Gammell before new illustrations were used for the 30th anniversary editions released in 2011. Now the project gets even more exciting. It’s being reported that Guillermo del Toro, the visionary director behind The Devil’s Backbone, Pan’s Labyrinth, Pacific Rim, Hellboy, Blade II, Crimson Peak, and more has jumped on board to develop the movie with a possibility of even directing it himself.

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.
