That’s why “Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark” is worthwhile
The film is directed by André Øvredal, who has already made a name for himself among horror fans with The Autopsy of Jane Doe. The script was written by del Toro, among others, who also produced the film. For “Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark” the filmmakers took on the short story collection of the same name by Alvin Schwartz. Since the books are aimed at children, the film adaptation is also suitable for horror beginners, despite the FSK 16 rating. At the same time, there are some truly spooky moments that veterans will remember as well.
Together with “Trick ‘r Treat”, which also tells its story episodically, “Scary Stories” captures the atmosphere of Halloween like hardly any other film, which lies somewhere between warm and cozy and spooky. In addition, the film manages to bring the iconic stories from the books to the screen adequately and to tell a framework story in which the characters matter to you. The result is a scary film with great pictures, which can also be watched annually at Halloween.
