It’s l968 in America. Change is blowing in the wind… but seemingly far removed from the unrest in the cities in the small town of Mill Valley where for generations, the shadow of the Bellows family has loomed large.
It is in their mansion on the edge of town that Sarah, a young girl with horrible secrets, turned her tortured life into a series of scary stories, written in a book that has transcended time–stories that have a way of becoming all too real for a group of teenagers who discover Sarah’s terrifying tome. In 2013, CBS Films acquired the rights to the book series with the intent of producing it as a feature film. By January 2016 it was announced that del Toro would develop and potentially direct the project for CBS Films.
Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark 2019 Plot:-
In 1968, three teenage friends in the small town of Mill Valley, Pennsylvania — Stella, an amateur author obsessed with the horror genre, Auggie, and Chuck — play a prank on bully Tommy Milner on Halloween night. When Tommy and his gang chase them in retaliation, the trio flees to a drive-in movie theater showing Night of the Living Dead, where a drifter named Ramón hides them in his car.
Later, they invite Ramón to explore a local “haunted house” which once belonged to the wealthy Bellows family, who helped found Mill Valley. Inside, they find a secret room and a book of horror stories written by Sarah Bellows. Having followed the group, Tommy locks them inside the room along with Ruth, Chuck’s sister and Tommy’s sometime girlfriend. They escape after being released by an unseen presence, and Stella takes the book home with her.
While eating candy in her room, Stella discovers that a new story, entitled “Harold,” is being written in Sarah’s book; the main character is Tommy. While delivering eggs to neighbors, an inebriated Tommy is stalked by a scarecrow. The creature stabs him with a pitchfork, causing Tommy to vomit hay and violently transform. The following day, Tommy is reported missing. Unsettled, Stella and Ramón investigate and find a scarecrow wearing Tommy’s clothes.
Though Stella is convinced that Tommy has been turned into a scarecrow, the others are skeptical, and Ramón is hesitant to go to the police as he fears they will suspect him due to his race and his previous altercation with Tommy. That night, Stella and Ramón witness a new story, “The Big Toe,” being written, with Auggie as the main character. The pair attempt to warn him about the monster in the narrative: a zombie searching for its missing toe, which is inside a stew that Auggie unwittingly eats. Please See More Information…….
