Guillermo del Toro’s Scary Stories in the Dark has released a new teaser trailer. The horror film is an adaption of a series of children’s books written by Alvin Schwartz, which is based on urban myths and legends.

The director, André Øvredal has made it clear that this film won’t be an anthology but rather one sole movie that manages to weave all the books together.

The synopsis of the film is available and reads, “It’s 1968 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 home.”

I mean, just check out the trailer below, it’s enough to give you a few sleepless nights, and that’s only from a teaser! I can’t wait to see what the next trailer has in store.

The film will be released in US cinemas on the 9 August, with no word on the UK release yet.
