SCARY STORIES Documentary Acquired by Wild Eye Releasing, Theatrical Release Planned for 2019

With a Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark feature film (co-written and produced by Guillermo del Toro) on the way from CBS Films and eOne, there couldn’t be a better time for a deep dive into the cultural impact of Alvin Schwartz and Stephen Gammell’s beloved children’s books. Director Cody Meirick provides just that with his new documentary Scary Stories, which has now secured a distributor. 

Deadline reports that Wild Eye Releasing picked up global rights to the Scary Stories documentary, with a theatrical release planned for 2019.

Brimming with more than 40 interviews, Scary Stories examines the seemingly endless influence of Schwartz and Gammell’s Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark book trilogy. From R.L. Stine to Alvin’s son Peter to librarians and scholars who fought to keep the book from being banned from young readers, Scary Stories truly takes an all-encompassing look at how special these books are to generations of readers.

We’ll keep Daily Dead readers updated on the release date for Scary Stories when one is announced, and in the meantime, you can read our Q&A with director Cody Meirick and Salem Horror Fest review of the documentary.
