Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark Teaser Trailer

"You don't read the book, the book reads you." CBS Films has revealed the first full teaser trailer for the horror adaptation of the beloved book series Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark, produced by Guillermo del Toro. And it looks creepy as hell, with a number of stories from the books coming to life in the freakiest of ways. The film is actually directed by Norwegian filmmaker André Øvredal (Trollhunter, The Autopsy of Jane Doe), and it's also produced by and co-written by del Toro. The horror anthology features various frightening stories based on the books, most featuring younger kids. With a cast including Zoe Margaret Colletti, Michael Garza, Austin Zajur, Gabriel Rush, Kathleen Pollard, and Gil Bellows. This new trailer gives us a bit more than all the TV spots, and seems like it might live up to the scariness of the books.

First teaser trailer (+ posters) for André Øvredal's Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark, from YouTube:

I don't know. It looks like a typical case of unearthing things that lie under surface. Which is not much ...

Dig the concept of short stories/movies. But they need to be knock hard good! Like Love death + robots.

Would someone be kind to tell me whether we see a spider/s coming out of some girl's face like implied on the poster? Really not interested in seeing that; Otherwise I'll give the trailer a watch.

Wonder what this'll be rated. If it's "R" I'm in. But if it's "PG-13" I'll wait for cable... Or not.
