      Stephen Romei The Australian This is a solid horror movie, thanks to its source material, its freakish monsters, its definite jump scares and good performances by Colletti and Garza. Rated: 3/5 Oct 5, 2019 Full Review Sandra Hall Sydney Morning Herald The plot takes many twists with an ingeniously designed set of monsters creating havoc at regular intervals. Rated: 3.5/5 Sep 25, 2019 Full Review Clarisse Loughrey Independent (UK) The film... is a loving and faithful adaptation, even if it gets lost in its attempt to wrap the whole thing up in a neat metaphor. Rated: 3/5 Aug 30, 2019 Full Review Mihir Fadnavis Firstpost Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark has Guillermo Del Toro’s fingerprints all over the film but benefits heavily from André Øvredal’s assured direction. Rated: 3/5 May 15, 2024 Full Review Joe Lipsett Hazel & Katniss & Harry & Starr Podcast Attempts to replicate Gammell's iconic visuals mostly work, but the Vietnam backstory is undercooked, villain Tommy is dispatched too early and most of the set pieces are too brief. What worked in Schwartz's campfire tales doesn't translate to screen Rated: 2.5/5 Oct 17, 2023 Full Review Manuel São Bento MSB Reviews Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark is a distinct horror flick, with well-developed leads, and a creative approach to a unique premise. Rated: B- Jul 24, 2023 Full Review Read all reviews
