Movie Reviews

  • there's no aura to them; the emotions of the stories have been lost. We could be watching the standard ghoulish CGI effects that take place in any horror movie of the week
    by Owen Gleiberman [Variety ]
  • there's a sincere fondness for the power of imagination, one that makes the film more than a nostalgia-delivery device. The YA favorite becomes an unusually thoughtful (if not quite terrifying) entry in today's wave of kid-centric retro horror
    3 of 5 by Joshua Rothkopf [Time Out New York ]
  • terrifyingly mediocre; This big-screen adaptation of the books.. plays out, not so elegantly
    by Keith Uhlich [The Hollywood Reporter ]
  • here is an R-rated concept that's been watered down until it passed for a PG-13 movie; it's plenty harrowing and full of gruesome effects, but it never feels dangerous; even the most frightening things never feel like they might follow you home
    Review rate : C+ by David Ehrlich [Indiewire ]
  • blessed with some firm hands on the terror tiller and a winning cast, "Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark" is a handsome, and deliciously horrible, horror movie
    Review rate : B+ by Clark Collis [Entertainment Weekly ]
  • Andre Ovredal's "Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark" hits nearly all the right notes. While it may be too scary for young children on their own, a family Halloween movie night with this would certainly be a hit
    4 of 5 by Jonathan Barkan [Dread Central ]
  • "Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark" ultimately celebrates reading and the joy of discovery through the written word; the film finally gets into gear around the midpoint and zooms to a satisfying finish
    3 of 4 by G. Allen Johnson [San Fransisco Chronicle ]
