I love collecting books from my childhood. Those books that I would check out from the library time and time again, reading them like they were brand new stories. In addition to my Goosebumps (I still have some from when I was a child), Wait Till Helen Comes and The Doll in the Garden by Mary Downing Hahns; are my favorite Banned Book Collection: Scary Stories To Tell In The Dark by Alvin Schwartz.
I read theses books cover to cover more than once. So when the new Scary Stories movie came out, my teenagers were going to see it.
Similar to the Goosebumps movie that came staring Jack Black (great movie btw, totally worth going to the theater for), Scary Stories all comes down to the stories in a book that has a haunting secret. Mixing stories from all three books, and each character being the same creepy, crawly, creation as the original artwork. My kids loved it and I had all the feels of my favorite Scary Stories.
If you haven’t seen the movie yet, DO IT! And do it at the theater, in the afternoon, ya know, because it’s scary.
