The long-awaited feature film from the iconic book series will be hitting theaters on August 9th!

From everyone’s favorite horror director Guillermo del Toro, Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark follows a group of kids who are being tortured by a book “that reads you.”

The newest trailer introduces the Jangly Man, a horrifying monster who can contort his body in unnatural ways. The most terrifying part is that this monster isn’t CGI…

The Jangly Man is played by contortionist “Twisty” Troy James. He was the perfect person to play this part since he moves his body in ways that seem fake… And that’s what makes The Jangly Man scary.

This film is rightfully slotted to be one of the most popular summer blockbusters. From the looks of this trailer, that seems to be pretty accurate
