It’s true, my love for the Scary Stories To Tell In The Dark series knows no bounds, as you may be aware if you follow my random ramblings here on iHorror. The stories from author Alvin Schwartz and haunting illustrations from Stephen Gammell have held a sincere, nostalgic area inside my cold, dark heart and have crossed over into parent-hood; introducing the stories to my own children in tradition with keeping these creepy short stories alive with the next generation.
The Scary Stories generation of children have developed into somewhat of a cult the last decade or so, and the fandom has grown substantially enough for 20th Century FOX to take notice with plans to turn those Library Book Fair nightmares into a full length feature film with Guillermo del Toro to develop and direct. Although we haven’t heard much in regards to updates on the movie since the beginning of 2016, we haven’t heard any bad news either. So while we’re continuing to play the waiting game with any word on this anticipated adaptation from the books we all grew up with, I came across some pretty wicked Scary Stories 3D chalk art posted by YouTube channel AWE me– and oh man it most certainly did.
This absolutely stunning display of talent mixed with one of the most iconic images from Scholastic book fairs everywhere in the eighties and nineties, hits all the nostalgic feels and furthers my appreciation for the horror artists all over. Keep up the great work guys!
