Trailer For Guillermo Del Toro’s ‘Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark’

“You don’t read the book, the book reads you.”

Directed by André Øvredal and written by a slew of writers (Dan Hageman, Kevin Hageman, John August, Guillermo del Toro, Marcus Dunstan and Patrick Melton) Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark deals with a group of teens who have to face their fears in order to save their lives.

This has some fairly interesting imagery. Some of course has been done to death (being dragged underneath a bed) but there were several others that had an air of novelty to them and dare I say…creepiness? It’s so hard to find good horror, especially in this day and age but I think I’ll give this one a shot.

Netflix’s The Order Gets A Second Season

Looks like Netflix’s horror drama The Order is getting a second season. Does that mean it’s good? Probably not.

Series synopsis via IMDB:

“Out to avenge his mother’s death, a college student pledges to a secret order and lands in a war between werewolves and practitioners of dark magic. “

I have a backlog of series and movies to watch and was thinking of adding this to it. The IMDB score is 7.0, which…isn’t…great, but for horror (even TV horror) it is actually not too bad.

Godzilla: King of the Monsters ‘Beautiful’ Trailer

Directed by Michael Dougherty (“Krampus”), Warner Bros next Godzilla flick: Godzilla: King of the Monsters has a new trailer out. This one highlights the ‘beauty’ of these monsters with a rendition of ‘Somewhere over the rainbow’ playing in the background (The Scary Stories to Tell in The Dark trailer above coincidentally used the same music…curiouser and curiouser).

The creature feature elements of this movie look great…but this is the first time my spider-sense has tingled regarding the human element. The dialogue I’ve heard so far is…not great. What this means for the film as whole has yet to be seen but my expectations have been slightly curbed.
