Guillermo del Toro, the director of Hellboy, Pan’s Labyrinth, and Crimson Peak, is developing a movie version of classic children’s book trilogy Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark. Deadline reports that del Toro will produce the movie for CBS Films, based on the books written by Alvin Schwartz, and may potentially direct it too. Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark was first published in 1981, and famously illustrated its spooky tales with chilling images from artist Stephen Gammell, whose ethereal ink pictures impacted a generation and helped lead to the book becoming the most banned from placement by the American Library Association for being too terrifying. A reprinted version of the books, released in 2011, replaces Gammell’s original art with less haunting alternatives, but for many the damage was already done.

It sounds like fans of the books can rest assured that del Toro will approach the material with respect — the horror expert owns 10 of Gammell’s original illustrations for the series, which he gleefully calls “scary as fuck.”

The Big Toe – Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark A boy digging in his family’s garden surprisingly uncovers a large human toe. Consequently, in an inventive idea that just about anyone would deem revolting, he plucks the disgusting digit off the ground with the intent of it being served as part of the family dinner; which it does, sliced and shared with mom and dad in a stew. However, he thought little of the faint groan heard after first obtaining the toe. After retiring to bed that night, the boy is awoken to the sound of a ghoulish voice hauntingly asking, “Where is my to-o-o-o-e?” Originating from the outside, the creepy queries constantly repeat, as the mysterious figure is heard working its way into the boy’s house, eventually arriving at the door of the boy’s room. Turning the knob and entering, the intruder screams, “YOU’VE GOT IT!” As the first story of the first book, this one sets the trilogy’s quirky and irreverent tone while conveying the visceral terror of being stalked by the supernatural. It is arguably the quintessential Scary Stories scary story. – On a side note, where the hell were mom and dad during all of this?!

If documentaries are more your speed, there may be one of those too. An upcoming documentary from Chicago filmmaker Cody Meirick will “explore the history and background of one of the most controversial works of modern children’s literature: Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark.” On the project website, Meirick explains that the film will not only explore the impact of the stories on the kids who grew up with them, but also the broader topics of children’s folklore, the heritage of gothic ghost stories, and what draws us to them.

Alvin Schwartz, the author and adapter behind the Scary Stories trilogy, actually began his career as a journalist, writing for The Binghamton Press from 1951 to 1955. He also had a penchant for wordplay, saying that creating rhymes is a good way for “people to express their feelings without getting in trouble.” After Schwartz left journalism, he started working for a research corporation, which he couldn’t stand, and began doing that part time, devoting the rest of his hours to writing books. One of his first published works: a Parents’ Guide for Children’s Play. His journalistic instincts and whimsical leanings are probably to thank for the Scary Stories’ characteristic surrealism and eerily matter-of-fact storytelling.

To check out the full, original line-up of Scary Stories books, you can dig around used book stores for the originals, check out the Scary Stories Treasury, which collects all three together.

May I Carry Your Basket? – Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark Sam Lewis is on a cold walk home (of course, just after midnight,) after a chess game get-together with a friend. Upon reaching a turn, he spots what appears to be a woman carrying a basket covered by a white cloth. Sam checks up on the mysterious figure, whose face he cannot see, wondering why she’s out alone this time of night. Ever the good Samaritan, Sam even asks her, “May I carry your basket?” However, her answer emanates from the basket itself, from which her head rolls out! Running in fear, Sam is pursued by the disembodied head and accompanying body. Not only does the segmented duo catch up with him, but the head bites him in each of his legs before abruptly disappearing. This is one of the series’ shorter stories and it carries an aura of randomness. However, it does feature the right amount of pulse-pounding terror, mixed with a tinge of humor, solidifying the proverb, “No good deed goes unpunished.”

Me Tie Dough-ty Walker! – Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark The legend of a haunted house in which a disembodied head allegedly falls down the chimney became the object of a rich man’s offer of $200 to anyone who would stay the night in the place. A boy seizes the opportunity to stay the night at the abandoned estate with the agreement that he could bring his dog. While the evening was initially uneventful, things pick up at the stroke of midnight when the boy hears a creepy voice outside repeatedly saying in singsong manner, “Me Tie Dough-ty Walker.” The sound seems to be getting closer and panic ensues when the dog indecipherably starts singing back! Suddenly, a bloody head rolls down the chimney, missing the lit fire (avoiding an awkward end), causing the abruptly a cappella canine to die from fright. When the boy meets the head’s gaze, it makes a blood-curdling scream! This is one of the most iconic stories in the books. The suspenseful build and the shocking, yet quirky development with the dog also violates the feeling of safety a pet owner typically enjoys, leading to the head-dropping denouement.

If you grew up in the 1990s, you knew them. They were elementary school hot commodities; usually you had to sign up on the library’s waiting list just to get your hands on a copy. Alvin Schwartz’s “Scary Stories To Tell In The Dark” series was, at its heart, a repackaging of folk tales, urban legends, and campfire ghost stories — but to the wide-eyed gaze of a child in the days before the internet, these books were the holy grail of scaring yourself shitless.

One Sunday Morning – More Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark Under the impression that she had overslept, a typically committed and punctual churchgoer named Ida swiftly got out of bed and left for mass. Thinking nothing of the fact that it was night, since mornings tended to be dark during that time of the year, she made her way to the church, only to discover bizarre things, notably the fact that the present parishioners consisted of the dead! In fact, some were just skeletons in suits. One of the dead, Josephine, who Ida knew, advises her to leave in a subtle manner. However, Ida’s presence raises the ire of the pew-dwelling dead and she’s chased out of the church and forced to run for her life. While having some close calls, she holds the ghosts at bay long enough until they disappear upon the rays of the morning sun. Confirming that the incident was no hallucination, her hat and coat – dropped mid-chase – were found torn to shreds. While this a rather straightforward horror story, the idea of accidentally stepping into a night mass for the dead is a terrifying prospect. Moreover, a movie scene showcasing the angry ghosts of the Stephen Gammell art would be memorable for the movie.
