The first full teaser trailer for the upcoming Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark movie is here and this new footage paints a very clear picture of just how director André Øvredal and Guillermo Del Toro will bring these stories (and terrifying illustrations) to life on film.

We previously got an early glimpse of the movie's versions of a few of the original stories during the Super Bowl, when four mini-trailers were released. However, this teaser trailer offers a broader look at the film and how it intends to tie these terrifying tales together. Give it a watch above and share your thoughts with us in the comments below or on social media.

This upcoming adaptation of Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark will follow “a group of teens who must solve the mystery surrounding a wave of spectacularly horrific deaths in their small town.”

The cast includes Zoe Colletti (Annie), Michael Garza (The Hunger Games: Mockingjay - Part 1), Austin Abrams (Paper Towns), Gabriel Rush (Moonrise Kingdom, The Grand Budapest Hotel), Austin Zajur (Fist Fight), Natalie Ganzhorn (Make It Pop), Dean Norris (Breaking Bad), Gil Bellows (The Shawshank Redemption), and Lorraine Toussaint (Selma, Orange is the New Black).

André Øvredal will direct the movie, which is based on a script by Guillermo Del Toro along with Daniel Hageman, Kevin Hageman, Patrick Melton, and Marcus Dunstan. The film is slated to be released on August 9th, 2019.
