'Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark' Spoilers That Will Keep You up at Night

By

If you were born in the '80s or '90s, you probably grew up reading Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark under the covers or with friends during recess. The stories (written by Alvin Schwartz), accompanied by the terrifyingly melt-y illustrations (by Stephen Gammell), was the true stuff of nightmares. One that *still* haunts me is "The Red Dot," which is about a girl who wakes up with a bump on her cheek that her mom insists is just a spider bite. When the girl goes to take a bath, the bump pops, and out crawl like, a hundred baby spiders! Turns out, a spider LAID ITS EGGS IN HER CHEEK. The thing about Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark, was that the stories were kinda...plausible. With the Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark movie coming out Friday, a part of us (maybe just me?) want to relive the scariest moments that will come up in the film adaptation. 

Here are all the Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark spoilers we could find.

1. It's already getting stellar reviews.

First of all, if you're unsure whether you should see it or not, know that Rotten Tomatoes has already given the movie an 80 percent, and it has a ton of great reviews. The movie, which is produced by Guillermo del Toro and directed by André Øvredal, is said to be gross, funny, and satisfying. It *is* PG-13, so you won't have to shield your eyes from too much gore or gratuitous blood and guts.
