The film adaptation of the popular horror book series Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark will arrive in theaters this summer, and the full official trailer just been released, teasing a Halloween setting for the movie.
The 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.
As we previously reported, much of the main action of the film will take place around the Halloween season, and you can see a few characters in costumes, a pumpkin in the background, and what appear to be trick or treat bags in the trailer.
Scary Stories stars Zoe Colletti, Michael Garza, Austin Abrams, Gabriel Rush, Austin Zajur, and Natalie Ganzhorn, directed by André Øvredal (The Autopsy of Jane Doe), produced by Guillermo del Toro, and based on Alvin Schwartz‘s popular trilogy of books and their illustrations by Stephen Gammell, the first of which was published in 1984.
Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark will arrive in theaters on August 9, 2019.
You can watch the full official trailer below.
