There’s a brand new trailer out today for the upcoming Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark adaptation from director André Øvredal (The Autopsy of Jane Doe), and not only does it give us a few new glimpses of artwork and scenes from the film, it also boasts a gorgeous cover of the classic psychedelic Donovan hit song “Season of the Witch” by none other than Lana Del Rey.
According to a Facebook post by Øvredal, the original tune will feature in the film, and Del Rey’s cover will be included over the films’ end credits.
Set in 1968, the film is takes place in the small town of Mill Valley. A group of teens discover an old book inside the old Bellows family mansion on the outskirts of the town where a young girl named Sarah wrote down all her terrible secrets, turning them into scary stories filled with monsters.
Upon opening the book, its horrors begin to escape the page and the teens find themselves in a race to save their lives and their town.
The film is produced by Guillermo del Toro who also co-wrote the screenplay with Dan and Kevin Hageman based on the original Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark books written by Alvin Schwartz with illustrations by Stephen Gammell.
