‘Scary Stories To Tell In The Dark’ Is Leaving People Too Scared To Sleep

‘Scary Stories To Tell In The Dark’ Is Leaving People Too Scared To Sleep

While we enjoy sitting down to a scary movie every now and again, we try to limit the ones that leave us sleeping with the lights on for days after. Scary Stories To Tell In The Dark, for example.

The hit horror movie is an adaption of Alvin Schwartz' three-book series which was published between 1981 and 1991. The film landed in cinemas on Friday 23rd August and made $20.84 million on its opening weekend - a record for CBS films.

Tales of classic macabre and gore, the movie is set in the fictitious town of Mill Valley, Pennsylvania in 1968, and follows a group of children who find a book in a creepy mansion.

When the terrifying tales start coming to life, things start to get pretty freaky and it's been scaring the bejesus out of viewers who have found themselves unable to sleep as the scenes haunt their nightmares.

"Hello my name is Lydia Lent, I'm nearly 22 years old, I was born in October and have always loved everything spooky and scary, and after seeing #ScaryStoriesToTellInTheDark, I had to sleep in my mom's bed for the night. Let this be a warning," said one viewer.

"Holy crap. #ScaryStoriesToTellInTheDark legitimately scared the hell out of me. I haven't been that scared watching a movie in years. Great CGI, amazing acting and a great story," said another.

A third added: "I saw #ScaryStoriesToTellInTheDark. I don't want to go to sleep now" while another terrified fan said: "It really took me a second to get to sleep last night because of #ScaryStoriesToTellInTheDark. I thought the Jangling Man was gonna come for me. A great horror flick that is both accessible to fans of the novels and fans of horror."




Directed by Guillermo del Torro, the Mexican filmmaker is renowned for creating terrifying movies - he's responsible for the dark drama Pan's Labyrinth.

One particular short story that's particularly giving people the creeps is called 'The Dream' and features the utterly terrifying Pale Lady.

You'll have to watch it (not alone) to understand for yourself.
