ArtNewsPress : Even more scary stories are going to be told in the dark.
“These books have now entertained three generations,” del Toro previously told IGN about the process of adapting the source material. “A lot of fathers know that the stories are campfire stories basically. They have a factor of fun. None of them are gory. They’re all creepy. They all have a humorous slant or very human. So we’re trying to cultivate the same PG-13, but spooky and fun.”
In our review of the first movie, we noted that it likely wouldn’t “satisfy hardcore horror hounds in the way they were hoping, but as a kids movie that also dedicates itself to being truly scary it both satisfies and succeeds as well as being occasionally surprising.”
