Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark [Includes Digital Copy] [4K Ultra HD Blu-ray/Blu-ray] 
If you have ever read the books this movie is in many ways directed as a love letter to you. A handful of the most popular stories are put into an interesting overarching narrative in small town USA. While I was disappointed with the ending and other elements of the plot overall this is a good introduction to horror movies for a tween or early teen.
Scary Stories is a fun movie; I saw it in the theaters and heard good opinion on the steelbook design. This one rarely goes on sale and I had waited months this year in hopes to catch a promotion. I purchased it in June and Best Buy finally offered it for sale early July. I learned that Best Buy only has a 15-day price match guarantee through this experience and was disappointed it was not a 30-day window like it's competitors. In regards to the steelbook design, it is a flat finish (not glossy) and the Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark wording along the binder is faint. It is a very nice looking art design; but I wish the coloring would have been printed more vibrant. It's difficult to tell under the initial plastic wrapping. Cover art is printed inside, but is brown tinted on the bland side. Not worth a $34.99 purchase; but would have been very satisfied with the $19.99 price point. I truly enjoy the movie but wish my opinion on the steelbook would match.
I have never read any of these stories growing up. I wanted to see this movie in the theaters, but missed it. It’s pretty creepy for a PG-13 movie, but I kind of wish it was rated R. Too much time on backstory of random characters, but other than that, it’s pretty decent.
Not a true horror movie but does have some scary moments. Based off the book of the same name the movie lifts some of more rememberable short stories from the book and manages to weave them through a cohesive movie plot. The movie does a great job at taking the terrifying images that made the book and bringing them to life on screen. A good movie that should scare a new young audience while the audience that grew up with the books can watch and enjoy for what it’s worth.
Theatrically I saw this immediately after I'd seen some other R-rated horror/suspenser. This one bested the movie I'd seen. I'm not usually drawn to Y/A stories or adaptations, but this worked beautifully.
