Every once in a while as a movie blogger, I read a review or see a high score on Rotten Tomatoes and then see a movie that has no business having a high score, in the case of “Scary Movies t Tell in the Dark” at 80%. There is nothing special about this film. Nothing that scary, nothing we have all not seen many times before. Parts of this film were very slow and boring in too many places. There was also nothing special about the ending that did not rescue this run of the mill horror movie or the special effects that were at best, average.
The correct rating for Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark is about 45%. This one should definitely be skipped.
