Produced by Guillermo del Toro, CBS Films and Lionsgate are releasing their adaptation of Alvin Schwartz’s children’s book series Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark adaptation in cinemas on August 9th, and to whet our appetites some short [very short!] videos introducing the film’s monsters were shown during the Super Bowl which you can view below. Meet the Pale Lady, Big Toe, Jangly Man….and the Red Spot!
Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark is directed by André Øvredal, written by Dan Hageman and Kevin Hageman from a story by Guillermo Del Toro, and stars Zoe Colletti, Michael Garza, Austin Abrams and Gabriel Rush.
