CBS Films, Lionsgate and eOne have released a new trailer for Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark, the upcoming horror film featuring a book that kills people. Yes, it does sound kind of like Death Note and Remedy’s Alan Wake. The film is based on the children’s horror books of the same name by author Alvin Schwartz, but the new film looks to be catering to all kinds of horror fans. Then again, the book was controversial due to its violent content and was often challenged.

Synopsis: 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.

The film is directed by André Øvredal and written by Dan Hageman & Kevin Hageman from a screen story by Guillermo del Toro and Patrick Melton & Marcus Dunstan. It’s produced by Guillermo del Toro, Sean Daniel, Jason F. Brown, J. Miles Dale and Elizabeth Grave.

The cast includes Zoe Colletti, Michael Garza, Gabriel Rush, Austin Abrams, Dean Norris, Gil Bellows, Lorraine Toussaint, Austin Zajur, and Natalie Ganzhorn.

Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark hits theaters on August 9, 2019.
