If you enjoy reading my Spoiler-Free reviews, please follow my blog :) This might be the very first film of 2019, which I knew absolutely nothing about going into the theater. Usually, I avoid trailers for most movies, but it's almost impossible to not catch an image or a clip here and there. However, for Scary Stories, since it wasn't heavily marketed in my country (at least), the only things I knew was that Guillermo del Toro was involved and that it was a horror flick. Knowing del Toro, I also remembered myself that this wouldn't just be a straightforward horror story, filled with predict... read the rest.

There's just enough scares to appeal to the under-15s with disposable income, but very little for anyone else looking to get into the real Halloween spirit. ‘Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark' has the potential to be really unique, but is let down by its blandness and lack of originality. Yes, there's a hint at a sequel at the end of the film, but I hope for our sake that the book is closed on any more of these scary stories. - Charlie David Page Read Charlie's full article... https://www.maketheswitch.com.au/article/review-scary-stories-to-tell-in-the-dark-a-harmless-tale-that-wont-haunt-... read the rest.

I was a little bit disappointed by Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark, but I say that with the caveat of it being one movie that I went into with high expectations - something I generally try to avoid having if I can. There is a lot I liked, creature effects, probably top of that list, but the story feels disconnected and for me had an unsatisfying resolution. Final rating:★★½ - Had a lot that appealed to me, didn't quite work as a whole.

I have no idea why I was expecting an anthology before I started watching this film. Anyway, it doesn't matter. While I dislike the increasingly high number of horror films which take place in 1960s/70s/80s nowadays, I still enjoyed watching this one. Surprisingly, each scary scene in the film is better than the one before, which makes the film better as you keep watching it. Would I watch it again? Yes. Would I make my friends watch it? Why not?

For a horror fan, this series is outstanding. And if yoi are not a horror fan, it is suggested strongly that you stop reading or watch and turn to something else. Each episode, Eli Roth focuses on the most classic movies in a specific sub-genre while getting commentary from that movies director/writer/actor or a deep bench of horror/film aficionados such as Stephen King and Quentin Tarantino. Be warned, If you are new to horror, or haven't seen all the movies featured, it will spoil everything. It showcases the most famous and/or best scenes of each referenced movie.

Most 'Haunted House' attraction movies are horrible. 'Haunt' is the rare exception. The directors also wrote 'The Quiet Place' and Eli Roth was involved. Regardless, this is a slick Halloween thriller.
