Out of all the short stories in Alvin Schwartz and Stephen Gammell's Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark book series, "The Red Spot" (which was published in the third installment of the series) is likely the creepiest tale for anyone with arachnophobia. Forever changing the way readers looked at bug bites, the skin-crawling tale came to life in CBS Films and Lionsgate's new Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark movie, and with the film now on Digital and coming to 4K Ultra HD, Blu-ray, DVD, and VOD this November, we've been provided with an exclusive clip that goes behind the scenes of "The Red Spot."
Below, you can go behind the scenes (or in this case, under the skin) of a very vicious spider bite in our exclusive clip from the film's special features, and keep an eye out for Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark on Digital now and on 4K Ultra HD, Blu-ray, DVD, and VOD beginning November 5th.

It’s 1968 in America. Change is blowing in the wind…but seemingly far removed from the unrest in the cities is the small town of Mill Valley, where for generations the shadow of the Bellows family has loomed large. It is in their mansion on the edge of town that Sarah, a young girl with horrible secrets, turned her tortured life into a series of scary stories, written in a book that has transcended time. For a group of teenagers who discover Sarah’s terrifying home, the stories become all too real in this spine-tingling film.
