With CBS Films’ Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark fast approaching, this new video from YouTuber Steve Richter seems like the perfect way to celebrate the release. In it, Richter creates a mold of the pipe-smoking clown skull that graces the cover of the book, giving it an eerie three-dimensional aspect that makes it pop, especially when framed at the end. You can watch the video below.
“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.“
Produced by Guillermo del Toro and directed by André Øvredal, 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 film comes out August 9.
