It was issue a statement about earlier this yr that Paramount Pictures and Entertainment One had been growing a sequel to SCARY MOVIES TO TELL IN THE DARK with director André Øvredal, writers Dan Hageman and Kevin Hageman, and producer Guillermo del Toro all back for additional. The sequel will one time once more be drawing upon Alvin Schwartz‘s “SCARY STORIES TO TELL IN THE DARK,” the youngsters’s horror series which featured terrifying illustrations by Stephen Gammell, and Øvredal informed Collider that they are going to be tapping much more into Gammell’s illustrations this time round.
I discovered a lot on Scary Stories, but additionally about Scary Stories and I do assume that we’ll faucet much more into [illustrator Stephen] Gammell’s visible world within the sequel than we did within the first film.
As many people are still haunted by these black and white photos we first noticed as kids, that is most likely not a foul concept. André Øvredal added that they are presently in a “holding sample” as they develop the story and script. SCARY STORIES TO TELL IN THE DARK revolved round a younger woman who transforms her tortured life right into a series of scary tales, however when a gaggle of youngsters stumbled upon her house on the fringe of city, they uncover that the horrors are all too actual. The novels on which the movie was primarily based comprises loads of horror tales, so the staff positively has plenty of tales to adapt.
I have never had the possibility to take a look at the movie for myself but (I do know, it has been over a yr), however our personal JimmyO was a fan of the movie upon its launch, saying that in his evaluation that SCARY STORIES TO TELL IN THE DARK “manages to create a way of doom within the midst of a younger grownup minded horror function. Even with a PG-13 score, it’s a enjoyable, twisted trip that can hang-out you for weeks. Especially for those who had been raised on these frights.” Are you people down for a sequel? What tales from the indigenous novels do you hope they’re going to adapt?
