      @Isaac Walker 1. They're forcing that girl to be in everything, she recently ruined Godzilla for me
      2. It's a quote from this trailer

    So it's basically a book that whoever reads it gets killed by their own worst nightmare or something? Or is it exactly like Goosebumps because I'm confused what she meant.🤔

    OK trailer for the most part, but the line “you don’t read the book, the book reads you!” Is pretty bad. It reminds me of “if you die in the game you die for real!”

      @fernando quintana which are better than this trailer. There isn't even a Jangly man in any of the stories. That has to be the stupidest addition they could have made.

      He said Jangly man. There is no story in the books with that creature. It sounds dumb. I have a feeling this movie was going to be something else before and it was changed at the last minute to a scary stories to tell in the dark movie.

    I don't want to sound like an a$$, but I think this should have been rated R. :)

    the biggest problem with this is that if you didn't tell me it was based on the books i would have no idea, it just looks like a totally generic teen horror movie.
