    Honestly on the fence. I rented it, and wanted to see it in theatres but for the life of me I cannot recall why I didn't. You can tell they want to set the time frame around the 60's-ish but it doesn't feel genuine at all. The Beginning of why they ended up in the house and the girl's reasonings for speaking to the ghost/writer isn't really clear thought she clearly set off the chain of events that followed. I don't know it was so/so for me. Not bad or GOOD either.

    A Hollywood formulated movie for teens that doesn't deliver any genuine scare or horror, if you enjoy your horror movies and know the good ones eg hereditary, conjuring, you'll most likely be thinking what I'm thinking.

    A couple of decent scares/moments, but outside of that it is a pretty forgettable, boring slog of a movie in my eyes. Good performances cannot make this film more interesting, I tuned out far too much.

    Godibile film horror che non presenta grandi elementi di novità ma rende la visione piacevole e scorrevole. Sempre interessante l'idea di avere una serie differente di nemici, peraltro ben studiati.

    Overall a great movie. It wasn't overfilled with cliches, like other horrormovies nowadays. The characters could actually make NOT-stupid-or-deadly decisions by themselves. The plot is interesting, and teases your curiousity.

    An unsettling, yet not explicitly graphic, spooky film that mentally prays on it's audience's vibes.

    Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark is a mediocre horror film from Guillermo del Toro. Based on the popular book series, a group of misfit teenagers explore a haunted house where they find a book belonging to a witch that begins to write stories in blood foretelling each of their deaths. The script is pretty formulaic and the creatures are rather tame (kind of what you'd expect from a kids book series). Still, the sets and costumes are well done and set the right tone and feel for the time period. And there's a powerful message about the power of storytelling. Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark has its problems, but it's entertaining and delivers a few chills.

    Waste of money. Maybe if you're 12 it might scare you. But i doubt it. Don't waste your time.
