New Scary Stories TV Spot Features Lana Del Rey’s Season of the Witch Cover
Lionsgate has released a new TVs pot for Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark and with it announced that Grammy-nominated singer/songwriter Lana Del Rey has recorded a cover of “Season of the Witch” which will be used in the film. Check out the video below for a hint of the new re-recorded version!
“I have admired Lana’s music for a while now and felt in my gut that she would run with ‘Season of the Witch’ – that she would use her alchemy to transform it,” said Guillermo del Toro. “She is a great artist and has been an amazing partner with us in this adventure. It is an honor for me to have met her.”
The film is set in 1968 America. Change was 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 home.
The film also stars Zoe Colletti (Annie), Austin Abrams (Brad’s Status, Tragedy Girls), Gabriel Rush (Moonrise Kingdom, The Grand Budapest Hotel), Michael Garza (Wayward Pines, The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 1), Austin Zajur (Fist Fight, Kidding), Dean Norris (Breaking Bad), Gil Bellows (Patriot, Jett) and Lorraine Toussaint (Into The Badlands, Selma, Orange Is The New Black) and Natalie Ganzhorn (Make it Pop, Wet Bum).
The movie is directed by André Øvredal (The Autopsy of Jane Doe, Trollhunter) and is co-written by Daniel and Kevin Hageman along with Guillermo del Toro, who provided the screen story.
The book series on which the film is based was first published during the 1980s, written/adapted from folklore by Alvin Schwartz and gorily illustrated by Stephen Gammell. The film follows a group of young teens who must solve the mystery surrounding the sudden and macabre deaths in their small town.
Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark will open on August 9.
