I bought a used copy of Scary Stories a few years ago before they redid all the original artwork. I knew I would need an original copy of the book for my shelf before the new less scary artwork was released into the wild.
The book was one penny. The shipping five bucks. The memories? Priceless.
Prepare yo’self for some intensely scary flashbacks to that one sleepover where everyone played light as a feather stiff as a board because Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark is coming to theaters. Y’all thought the book was scary with artwork like this?
Well then, watch the trailers here:
Yeah, so, there’s that. Seems damaging to a young child’s psyche and honestly, so I’m still shocked I was allowed to read this book as a kid.
Check out the first movie poster that’s been released so far:
I pulled my copy of the first book off it’s shelf in my office and briefly read through some of the stories, just to reacquaint myself with a book that I fiercely loved as a child. Honestly, I don’t know how it is I ever slept as a kid. Some of the stories weren’t too scary, but then the creepy pictures that accompanied the stories were just chilling. I’m a huge horror movie fan, but I am not 100% sure how I’ll be able to sit through this movie, all those spooky pictures coming to life? Yikes.
