The shadow of the Bellows family has loomed large in the small town of Mill Valley for generations. It's in a mansion that young Sarah Bellows turns her tortured life and horrible secrets into a series of scary stories. These terrifying tales soon have a way of becoming all too real for a group of unsuspecting teens who stumble upon Sarah's spooky home.

It's based on the children's book of the same name by Alvin Schwartz.

Currently 81% on Rotten Tomatoes.

Seeing it next Saturday! Anything horror related with Guillermo involved is guaranteed to be amaze wub.gif

I thought the trailer looked dumb, but I'll give it a go!

Saw this today and it was enjoyable albeit certainly not a masterpiece. The design of the monsters was great and the stories were all suitably creepy, I liked that there was an attempt to combine the context with the horrors, but it definitely could've been fleshed out a lot more, a few too many jump scares as well, horror films that rely on that are becoming a bit inessential to me.

Probably one for just genre fans, but I do love a bit of Del Toro so was satisfied!

Yup, agreed with everything.

The scariest part of the film was definitely The Pale Lady. Genuinely unsettling tbh

I watched it twice. Pretty good but nothing spectacular. The Pale Lady was definitely the creepiest of them all. An utterly terrifying character and idea.

I saw it today and didn’t know at all what to expect, it was meh. The 15 rating is definitely unnecessary. Kept wanting it to end lol. I don’t think the main character really looked like she fit in 1968

Saw this last night, and as somebody who's generally not a fan of horrors, this was pretty fantastic!! wub.gif Was hooked from start to finish!

I don't get the comments about the Pale Lady being terrifying though? Me and my friend literally laughed out loud when we saw her. That whole scene was more funny than scary. kink.gif
