'Scary Stories' Documentary Trailer

  • Scary Stories, a documentary about the Scary Stories To Tell in the Dark books by Alvin Schwartz, premieres April 26th in select theaters, and on VOD May 7th.

  • Cody Meirick’s film features more than 40 interviews, from family members of author Alvin Schwartz, to fellow children's book horror authors like R.L Stine (Goosebumps) and Q.L. Pearce, to folklorists, artists and fans discussing the impact that the books have had on both themselves as well as the culture at large. The documentary also explores the various times in which the books were banned or targeted by parent and religious groups as ‘satanic’ or otherwise too macabre for its targeted teen scholastic audience.

  • A feature film based on the books, directed by Guillermo del Toro, is coming out this summer.
