There are few words right now that grab my attention more than “new Scary Stories To Tell in The Dark trailer”. From director André Øvredal (The Autopsy of Jane Doe) and producer Guillermo del Toro (Cronos), Scary Stories To Tell in The Dark is, of course, the adaptation of Alvin Schwartz’s books of the same name. The film hits theatres August 9, 2019 but if you’re as impatient as I am, you’ve been swallowing up every poster, every promo, and every teaser CBS Films, Lionsgate, and eOne have been releasing in anticipation of the big day.

Just yesterday a new trailer dropped to top up your Nightmare Fuel reserves. If you aren’t worried about losing a little sleep, or looking over your shoulder when thing get just a little too quiet, check out the new trailer below!


Official Synopsis:

It’s l968 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.

Scary Stories to Tell in The Dark is directed by André Øvredal (The Autopsy of Jane Doe) and written by (a whole ton of people! including) John August (Frankenweenie) Daniel & Kevin Hageman (The Lego Movie), Guillermo del Toro (Cronos) who also holds a producing credit. The highly anticipated film hits theatres everywhere August 9, 2019 and stars Zoe Colletti (Annie), Michael Garza (Wayward Pines), Gabriel Rush (Moonrise Kingdom), and Kathleen Pollard (The Strain). Rounding out the cast are Austin Abrams, Dean Norris, Gil Bellows, Lorraine Toussaint, Austin Zajur, and Natalie Ganzhorn.
