Sorry you haven’t gotten an update in a while. I’ve been hard at work putting together the best Scary Stories documentary possible! You’ll be happy to hear that I am dropping a brand new trailer today. Here it is! Furthermore, an update. I was hoping to be 100% finished with it by Halloween… turns out we’re about 97% finished. We should be done in the next several weeks.

Sorry I haven’t updated this blog in a while. I have been posting on social media often. You can see all kinds of stuff on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram… So here is one big update. We’re almost there! The past few months there has been a ton of editing and I’ve really discovered the pace and…

It’s been a little while since updating the blog. So here it is. We’ve been hard at work and we’ve completed a lot more. And we’ve updated the GALLERY to reflect just some of what we’ve accomplished. We have interviewed a number of amazing scholars in folklore, children’s literature, and history. We’ve interviewed more artists and musicians. And we’ve interviewed R.L. Stine.

So our latest crowdfunding campaign just ended. The focus of the campaign was always to get the word out as much as possible. Major websites, podcasts, newspapers. I knew that we were going to hit our limit on the reach we had pretty quickly on social media so as long as we had a solid product, solid campaign page, pitch video, and rewards (which I really think we do) then it’s all about getting new traffic to the campaign in whatever way that is possible.

Respect to the Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark Movie but Documentaries are Nice Too

Yes, for over two years now we’ve been very aware of the Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark movie that has been in production. When the first news that they were working on that film was announced, I was looking it as a great subject for a documentary. I could never prove that. It was just an idea I was batting around. And now here we are. Their movie progresses and mine does as well.

With the new campaign, new trailer, and all kinds of other updates with the Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark documentary, we unveiled a teaser poster done by the very talented artist Matthew Therrien. Along with this, we thought a Q&A with him would be a great way to take a look at how he tackled the poster and the incredible work he has done previously.
How did you come to depict the particular figures and art that is found in the teaser poster for Scary Stories?
Whenever I thought about what to illustrate for this poster…

Trying to Finish This Documentary for the 35th Anniversary

So we’re launched! This is our 2nd crowdfunding campaign, the last one being a year ago. This time we have a trailer, we have a teaser poster, we have interviews with the author’s family, and we have a great line-up of upcoming interviews. Oh and we have SHIRTS! We’re going to push forward with this documentary no matter what, but it would be nice to have the ability to complete it this year. In 1981 the first book, Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark, was published. I was one-year-old at the time.

Oh, what a wonderful season it has been. We started it off with unveiling our documentary trailer, we did an AMA, we went to Chicago Ghost Con, and overall I’ve had a great time hearing the reception of the trailer and new buzz over the Scary Stories legacy during the time when people get really nostalgic over them. I have updated the Press & Mentions page with some new mentions. Along with a new Q&A and AMA, make sure you take a look at a new article in Mental Floss, which outlines a lot of the most interesting things about Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark, all of which shows how much there is to explore in documentary form.
