Horror directed by André Øvredal from a story by Guillermo del Toro. The movie follows a group of young teens who face their fears in order to solve the mystery that involves a series of horrific deaths in their small hometown.
Here is the official plot from CBS Films and Lionsgate:
“It’s 1968 in America. Change is blowing in the wind, but seemingly far removed from the unrest in the cities is 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.”
Sarah Bellows: [voice over] This town has told stories about me, horrible stories. But they don’t realize, I have scary stories of my own.
[opens a book in which the inscription quotes, “This book belongs to Sarah Bellows”]
Stella Nicholls: Sarah Bellows, tell me a story.
Chief Turner: [to Stella] Sarah Bellows’s book. The stories write themselves, and it all comes alive.
Stella Nicholls: [crying] I’m afraid I’m going to die, dad.
Chuck Steinberg: [to Stella] We’re next. We’re next.
Stella Nicholls: You don’t read the book, the book reads you.
