    Great review as always. I don’t really watch a lot reviews but I always know you’ll give a good review without spoilers and you’re not pretentious about your opinions.

        I felt like Scary Stories to Tell In The Dark was like the child version of Final Destination. Like one of them is next on death’s list but none of the deaths are gory or super disturbing.

              I'm still waiting for a Fear Street movie series. If Goosebumps can make it, Fear Street can go for the throat.

                Srsly??? This movie was a bunch of jump scares perforated by a very bad story. It ruined the book's legacy.

                                It really wasn't that great of a movie. The creatures and death scenes were alright but the scenes between were boring and the ending was TERRIBLE.

                                  I hate this New trend by Film makers to make Horror Movies in the WAY TOO DARK style We know it's suppose to be Night ....But must you light the Set like Pitch BLACK ?. & we are trying to see what the Hell is going on 50% of the Movie .

                                      I was bummed that this really didn’t work for me. The beginning was WAY too slow, the settings weren’t ominous or memorable enough, and I hate saying this, but I thought that the kid actors, particularly the lead, gave really weak performances.

                                        One of my favorite parts was when the kid got dragged under the bed. It had a lot of interesting/strange camera angles that made me feel a bit uneasy.

                                              The monster designs were eh but the design of the dream lady was so fucking good and genuinely scarier than the original imo

                                                It is so wrong to turn this children’s book into a horror movie LOL

                                                That said, I plan to watch it. I love Guillermo

                                                  That's the exact same score I'd give it.

                                                          85% of the movie is just characters giving exposition

Those drawings were freaky as hell lol. I use to read the stories from the book to my daughter when she was little younger, she is now 15 and still likes to for me to read her the stories when she has friends over lol.

                                                                                            I’m on the other side of the spectrum, I was already a teenager when these books came out. And at that time I was already reading Stephen King and Anne Rice. So I never owned them.
                                                                                            When I saw the trailer and Guillermo Del Toro’s name, I bought the books on Amazon.
                                                                                            Words cannot express my disappointment. Clearly the only thing haunting children were the images? I mean, this is not young adult. This is like 7 year old. The story’s are wooden and dull, typically told in 3-6 paragraphs.
                                                                                            The images.. haunting. The stories without them. Empty and uninteresting.
                                                                                            I guess I don’t get it. The writing appears to have been geared towards ppl in the 5-10 age range, but the artwork suggests an older audience. Idk
