Criticism of Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark.

A group of teenagers dare to explore the haunted house in Mill Valley and discover inside a book that turns out to have supernatural powers. Immediately, the Bellows family book changes their destinies and young Sarah's horror stories begin to come true. They must solve the mystery that surrounds a series of sudden and macabre deaths that take place in the town.

Directed by André Øvredal, Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark belongs to the imagination of its producer and author of the plot: the meticulous Guillermo del Toro. Despite being sponsored by a person so recognized in the audiovisual world, the brilliant direction overlaps to delight us with a malicious genre. The scenes that make up the film convey a exquisite continuity of each of them mixed with some great revealing shots that will captivate the viewer. All this to the detriment of cloying second part.

Actress Zoe Margaret Colletti and actor Michael Garza hold a bland interpretation lacking truth since their strange first meeting. Despite being the great protagonists, they have not managed to get along with their characters much; to a certain extent due to the inexplicable love subplots or escapes. The rest of the acting team also does not manage to relaunch the losses of the protagonists with interpretations mediocre but minimally credible.

A meticulous technical team

The most impressive thing about Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark alongside the magnificent direction is the powerful staging and careful photography. The first of these is reinforced by the different locations that the film runs through from a characteristic beginning that shows the great team behind it. For its part, photography combines very well the change of spaces as well as the different moments of the day and even the rhythm. Play the right way with the colors and combines them with a wonderful composition.

The film does not shine neither for its script nor for its actors, that is to say, the plot is too linear, predictable and tired after a very striking and innovative first part. Despite this, the rest of the elements fit together so well that it manages to turn a lost film into one technically admirable. Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark mixes unique and terrifying aspects that make it a movie worth seeing.
