The film follows a group of teens that discover a book of horror stories in an abandoned mansion, "stories written by a young girl with horrible secrets"...stories that come to life, terrorizing the hapless teens and pulling them into a series of gruesome murders.
"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 tome." - CBS Films
The movie, directed by André Øvredal, hits theaters this summer.
