SCARY STORIES TO TELL IN THE DARK
- Direction: Andre Ovredal
- Actors: Zoe Colletti, Michael Garza
- Rating: 1 / 5
The most disheartening thing about this purported horror flick is the participation, if only as co-writer and producer, of creature-feature maestro Guillermo Del Toro (The Shape of Water).
The plot strives in vain to elicit our concern for the plight of a group of teens who land up in an old dark house looming in the middle of nowhere. The schoolmates stumble upon a dog-eared volume of tales based on urban legends. Soon enough, monsters lurking within the pages spring to life and hunt down the youngsters.
