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 comes to life in a new poster for CBS Films and Lionsgate's new Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark movie.
Directed by André Øvredal (The Autopsy of Jane Doe, Trollhunter) from a screenplay written by Daniel Hageman & Kevin Hageman and Guillermo del Toro, and based on the popular book trilogy written by Alvin Schwartz’s and illustrated by Stephen Gammell, Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark stars Zoe Colletti, Michael Garza, Gabriel Rush, Austin Abrams, Dean Norris, Gil Bellows, Lorraine Toussaint, Austin Zajur, and Natalie Ganzhorn.
The new Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark movie is produced by Sean Daniel, Elizabeth Grave, Guillermo del Toro, Jason F. Brown, and J. Miles Dale.

Synopsis: "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—stories that have a way of becoming all too real for a group of teenagers who discover Sarah’s terrifying home."
