$29.99
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 secrets, turned her life into a series of scary stories — stories that have a way of becoming all too real for a group of teenagers who discover Sarah’s terrifying prose. Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark: The Haunted Notebook of Sarah Bellows is a must-have companion to the upcoming film. Inside are Sarah Bellows’ scary stories, illustrated with dozens of frightening and intricate sketches and color artwork. Designed as a replica of the book seen in the film, these pages also include a behind-the-scenes section, filled with concept art and unit photography, showing how director André Øvredal and producer Guillermo del Toro brought Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark to the screen.
