Halloween 1968. High school student Stella, a big lover of scary stories, and her two friends dress up in ridiculous costumes and go for a walk. It so happens that the guys get rid of the school bully and the bully Tommy and, fleeing from him, get acquainted with the non-local guy Ramon, and then go to an old abandoned mansion. The house belonged to the Bellows family, all members of which mysteriously disappeared almost 100 years ago, and terrible legends still go about the daughter of the Sara family – supposedly she can kill by telling stories. Friends find a secret room, and Stella takes home a book where Sarah wrote her stories, and on the pages of which a new one appears that same evening, and the bully Tommy disappears without a trace.

I try to follow the movie, to which the iconic Mexican director and screenwriter Guillermo del Toro has a hand in hand, and rarely am disappointed in my choice. Thus, I could not miss the new film Terrible stories for a story in the dark, to the creation of which the Mexican filmmaker was involved.
The action takes place in the now popular 1960s in a small American town, and we all know that according to the legends of the great Stephen King, something terrible always happens in such places, especially on the eve of Halloween. Three friends, including the girl Stella, who dreams of becoming a writer, and a couple of her not most popular friends decide to take revenge on their offenders. The plan of revenge is thought out and damn ingenious: throw a bag of selected feces into the car of hooligans. However, the guys did not take too much care of the early retreat, as a result of such a turn, the fugitives get acquainted with another hero – a young Mexican. Experienced adventures are not enough, and Stella invites a new acquaintance to an abandoned building, which is associated with a chilling legend. What could go wrong? ..
I will make a reservation that I was not familiar with the original text. And the biggest fear was that the story would not have a coherent plot. Have to be content with a set of poorly connected horror stories. But nothing like that! Its just that everyone who visits an abandoned mansion has their own fear, that is, their own terrible story for a story in the dark, and almost every one of them will make you feel like a goosebump. Why is there only one kind of monster that can tear off its limbs and recover again …
The movie will definitely remind the horror fan of Very strange things and It. Here is the same relishing of the 1960s (although those works are about the 1980s), the same little heroes and otherworldly creatures that have to be dealt with … or teenagers cannot cope with. Perhaps, there wasnÂt so much humor here, but in this context it even sets the movie out of the line of similar film products.
