A documentary on Alvin Schwartz’s macabre literary classic is imminent.
To complement the upcoming summer release of the Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark movie, a documentary pertinent to original book series is now slated for release on July 16th, 2019, directed by Cody Meirick and to be issued by Wild Eye Releasing.
Succinctly titled Scary Stories, the documentary will include over 20 minutes of bonus footage, as well as more than 40 interviews with relevant persons ranging from Alvin Schwartz’s family, author R.L.
