Movie Reviews

An adaptation that should please fans of the classic book anthology series, as well as serve as a great gateway horror film.

While this film doesn't break any new ground or add innovation to the horror genre necessarily, it brings the stories we grew up with to life and gives them a richer visual identity. Ovredal/Del Toro excel at giving us chillingly well constructed tension filled scenes of ominous creatures, haunting spirits, and just an atmospheric overall feel that puts the viewer right into the stories. While the teen characters are by the numbers and wreak of goosebumps/IT/Stranger Things influence, they are serviceable for the particular story. The horror visuals take the main focus and steal the show for the 108min runtime which is actually longer than most horror's of this nature and build off scene to scene effectively. Even viewers that are unfamiliar with the classic stories of the same name will be very satisfied with this film and hopefully be inspired to go back and read the books. I hope this film spawns a franchise and I'm happy to say this thoroughly surprised me as i was cautiously optimistic as to how they'd adapt it.

Nice visuals, but weak overall

Highlights:

  • The visualization of the various horror figures, e.g. Harold and the Pale Lady.
  • Several creepy and/or shocking moments keep things interesting, e.g. the pimple scene.
  • Zoe Colletti as Stella was fun to watch.


Lowlights:
  • The 'outer story' constructed to wrap the stories together is lazy and uninspired. It would have been better just to leave them separate and flesh them out a little, drawing out the tension in each.
  • I liked the attempt to bring in the 1968/Nixon/Vietnam stuff, but it just came across as awkward.
  • The characters are all pretty stock, giving the film a packaged feeling.
  • The scene with Stella and Sarah towards the end is in particular forced and weak ("that's on you" ...ugh, an eight year old could have written this)
  • Overall comes across as pretty standard stuff. It's not horrible, but it could have been much better.

Scary Stories To Tell in The Dark - 'Goosebumps' for teenagers

Horror drama based on a book series.

A group of teenagers explore a spooky house and they find a dusty book, they find that you don't read the book, the book reads you and seems to write itself. The stories that emerge cause deaths.

I don't understand how this wasn't released to coincide with Halloween. Pretty disappointing, I was hoping for a lot more as this was rated a C15 in the UK. I'm not a horror genre fan but was hoping for more, not very scary at all.
