NOSTALGIC CAMPFIRE TALES COMING TO THE BIG SCREEN
In the past few years the entertainment industry has been cashing in on the nostalgia of 90’s kids to mixed success. I guess “mixed success” is really being nice about it; more to the point there have been some pretty cool flicks and some real dog shit. Lookin at you TMNT and Ghostbusters reboot.
One of the coolest nostalgia fueled films was Goosebumps. I mean, I mourned the death of Jack Black’s career a long time ago just like everyone else but this movie was hard not to be excited about. I read a ton of the books and watched every episode of the show. So when I learned that the other horror-for-kids show, “Are You Afraid of the Dark?” Is getting the big screen treatment I got pretty stoked.
The news just got better when I learned that Gary Dauberman will be writing the film. Dauberman penned both the IT reboot and Annabelle: Creation. Even if you found fault in those movies you can’t deny that the writing was on point. To put a cherry on top of the whole scary sundae, Dauberman has said that he will stay true to the dark spirit of the original show. Honestly, my hopes are high for this one.
We’ll keep an eye on this story and keep you updated.
