‘Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark’ Gets New Poster Before August Release

Creeping into theaters next month, Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark has a new poster right from Lionsgate that features the terrifying Jangly Man. Check it out below!

The film is set in America during 1968. Change was 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.

The film stars Zoe Colletti (Annie), Austin Abrams (Brad’s Status, Tragedy Girls), Gabriel Rush (Moonrise Kingdom, The Grand Budapest Hotel), Michael Garza (Wayward Pines, The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 1), Austin Zajur (Fist Fight, Kidding), Dean Norris (Breaking Bad), Gil Bellows (Patriot, Jett) and Lorraine Toussaint (Into The Badlands, Selma, Orange Is The New Black) and Natalie Ganzhorn (Make it Pop, Wet Bum).

The movie is directed by André Øvredal (The Autopsy of Jane Doe, Trollhunter), co-written by Daniel and Kevin Hageman along with its screen story by Guillermo del Toro.

First published during the 1980’s, the book series which the film is based on was written and adapted from folklore by author Alvin Schwartz and illustrated by Stephen Gammell with its gory imagery.

Scary Stories will release in theaters on August 9.

Since Mark was four years old he has always loved the horror genre, even when his mother would be a good parent and not let him watch such films. It was when he would sneak into the Horror section at the video store called Tommy K's that he would see all of the VHS covers of classics like Friday the 13th and A Nightmare on Elm Street. During his time as a journalism major and news staff writer at Southern CT State University, he had the pleasure of meeting and interviewing paranormal investigator Lorraine Warren before a seminar in 2009 at the Lyman Center on campus.
