Following yesterday’s ‘Red Dot‘ poster release from Acadamy Award-winner Guillermo del Toro‘s adaptation of Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark, we a new poster and it’s pretty disturbing. As we look down a red-filled hallway we see the Pale Lady waiting at the end, a white, black-eyed creature that will haunt your nightmares.
The poster is inspired by a story featured in the book The Dream which centers on a girl who has a nightmare about a terrifying woman. We got our first look at the disturbing creature during the Super Bowl in a teaser trailer (below).
In Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark, 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 home.
Written by Guillermo del Toro, Dan Hageman, and Kevin Hageman, the film stars Zoe Colletti, Michael Garza, Gabriel Rush, Austin Abrams, Dean Norris, Gil Bellows, Lorraine Toussaint, Austin Zajur, and Natalie Ganzhorn.
Guillermo del Toro produces alongside Sean Daniel, Jason F. Brown, J. Miles Dale, and Elizabeth Grave.
Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark opens in theaters everywhere on August 9, 2019, from CBS Films and Lionsgate.
