Movie Review – Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark


Series Blurb:

On Halloween 1968, reclusive Stella and her two friends meet a mysterious drifter, Ramón, and uncover a sinister notebook of stories.

My Review:



There wasn’t really a character I didn’t like. Though simple, I liked them all and enjoyed following their journeys.



The plot was pretty simple, but really creepy at the same time. Definitely kept me on the edge of my seat the whole time!



Overall, the flow of the movie stuck with the main plotline. Can’t really complain here.

Overall Impression

This movie was a lot of fun! You’ve got Stella and her friends on Halloween night doing some pranks, leading them to meet Ramon. From there they visit a haunted house and find a scary book of stories. But soon the book starts writing scary stories before their very eyes, and it’s got sights on people they know in town.

I watched this on a bored Saturday night with my roommate. This movie was pretty solid. I cared about the characters, the plot was creepy and took us on several memorable stories from the old novels, and it all flowed nicely.

Though the movie was a lot of fun, I wasn’t completely blown away by it, but it is worth a watch if you want some classic scares to keep you up at night.

Final Score
