In the small town of Mill Valley, for generations, the shadow of the Bellows family has loomed large. In their mansion on the edge of town, Sarah Bellows (Kathleen Pollard), a young girl with horrible secrets, has 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 tome.

After reading the book, the teens discover it taps into their darkest fears, creating terrifying manifestations that come after them. Now the teens must face their greatest fears in order to save their own lives.

Inspired by one of the most terrifying children's book series of all time.

  • 4 stars "Neat little scary stories. I liked it. Definitely aimed for younger audiences but fun all the same."
  • 4 stars "Loved this movie from beginning to end! Pure classic horror that kept me at the edge of my seat. Yes, it was scary indeed! If you like the television series Are You Afraid of the Dark then you will enjoy this movie. I hope more movies like this will be made in the future and can't wait for part 2 of this :)"
