Default The 'Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark' Documentary Trailer is Wicked Good

http://www.best-horror-movies.com/ne...is-wicked-good

Quote:
Scary Stories: A Documentary will explore the history and background of one of the most controversial works of modern children’s literature. In the 1980s and 1990s in elementary libraries across the United States these books developed a growing interest from boys and girls who were taken in by the gothic tales, the whimsical tone, and the ghostly illustrations. Now the Scary Stories book series stands as the most challenged children’s book of the last 30 years and a testament to the power of something that is often taken for granted: a good scary story.
I hope this documentary actually happens. I loved the "Scary Stories" series; I give them credit for helping to turn me into a lifelong horror fan.

I loved those as a kid and was so disappointed they replaced the illustrations. By all means, we don't want our kids to be scared by a scary story!
