Based on the children's anthology book series by Alvin Schwartz. First published in 1981, the first book of what became a three-book series (it was followed by "More Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark" and "Scary Stories 3: More Tales to Chill Your Bones") is officially described as follows:
This spooky addition to Alvin Schwartz's popular books on American folklore is filled with tales of eerie horror and dark revenge that will make you jump with fright. There is a story here for everyone -- skeletons with torn and tangled flesh who roam the earth; a ghost who takes revenge on her murderer; and a haunted house where every night a bloody head falls down the chimney. Stephen Gammell's splendidly creepy drawings perfectly capture the mood of more than two dozen scary stories -- and even scary songs -- all just right for reading alone or for telling aloud in the dark. If You Dare!
