Scary Stories To Tell In The Dark: 2019 Film

You didn't have a childhood if you didn't read those creepy books.

Scary Stories To Tell In The Dark: 2019 Film

I'm sure everyone remembers those legendary short stories from the super popular "Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark" series. If you don't, obviously you lived under a huge rock when you were little.

My favorite genre of literally anything is horror. Sometimes I second guess if I'm lowkey a dark person because of how much I enjoy it. When I first saw the trailer for this, I was fairly excited. But I won't lie, it did make me a bit nervous. Although I'm completely obsessed with spirits, serial killers, and urban legends, I have seen my fair share of terrible horrible films in my lifetime. Honestly, it irritates me when a seemingly great screenplay is ruined by poor acting or camera effects. I thought to myself, "I'm not sure if this will be great."

then it finally made it's debut, but I usually never see a film the day it premiers, why torture yourself with not being able to get a comfortable seat. Anyways, an entire month went by before I finally made arrangements to check it out. It wasn't anything to necessarily brag about, but it was way better than I expected.

I was shocked that the creepy characters actually looked exactly like they were described in the books; great job to the costume designers! Maybe since I have grown up, it takes a lot to shake me up. The horror and violence committed against the characters were a bit cheesy, but I can totally see why someone younger than me would be frightened. Also, certain camera effects shocked me! In a good way; I felt that time and effort were put into reviving a childhood creep factor. The acting was not too bad either; if anything, the actors and actresses played their roles exactly how I thought they would.

I applaud everyone who worked on this project, thank you for filling my head with those scary characters again.

Three years ago, I chose to attend college in Philadelphia, approximately 360 miles away from my small town in New Hampshire. I have learned many valuable lessons away from home, and have thoroughly enjoyed my time spent in Pennsylvania. One thing that my experience has taught me, however, is that it is absolutely impossible to beat a New England summer.

Nature is beautiful (and so is math). The last one will blow your mind.

Yes, the math major is doing a math-related post. What are the odds? I'll have to calculate it later. Many people have probably learned about the Fibonacci sequence in their high school math classes. However, I thought I would just refresh everyone's memories and show how math can be beautiful and apply to physical things everywhere around us with stunning examples.

For as long as I can remember, I have been listening to The Beatles. Every year, my mom would appropriately blast “Birthday” on anyone’s birthday. I knew all of the words to “Back In The U.S.S.R” by the time I was 5 (Even though I had no idea what or where the U.S.S.R was). I grew up with John, Paul, George, and Ringo instead Justin, JC, Joey, Chris and Lance (I had to google N*SYNC to remember their names). The highlight of my short life was Paul McCartney in concert twice. I’m not someone to “fangirl” but those days I fangirled hard. The music of The Beatles has gotten me through everything. Their songs have brought me more joy, peace, and comfort. I can listen to them in any situation and find what I need. Here are the best lyrics from The Beatles for every and any occasion.

Small towns certainly have their pros and cons. Many people who grow up in small towns find themselves counting the days until they get to escape their roots and plant new ones in bigger, "better" places. And that's fine. I'd be lying if I said I hadn't thought those same thoughts before too. We all have, but they say it's important to remember where you came from. When I think about where I come from, I can't help having an overwhelming feeling of gratitude for my roots. Being from a small town has taught me so many important lessons that I will carry with me for the rest of my life.
