You might be considered a bad parent, but I say take your teenage kid to see Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark. As far as horror movies go, this is the kind that will get you hooked on the genre, and might even inspire you to seek out the Alvin Schwartz short stories to keep the scary energy going. This production is following up on the trends that started from Stranger Things and most recently- It. It’s a mixture of nostalgia and the things that go bump in the night. We follow a group of high school kids, living in a small town, that stumble onto a book that writes creepy stories in blood, each one leads to terrifying events, some that will haunt these kids for life. Director Andre Ovredal packages, a well balanced, fright fest for teens, reminding the grown ups of their lost innocence, and possibly forcing you sleep with the light on for the night.
