SCARY STORIES TO TELL IN THE DARK - Season of the Witch Trailer featuring Lana Del Rey.
On Halloween, 1968, in the small town of Mill Valley, Pennsylvania, three teen friends, Stella, Auggie (Gabriel Rush), and Chuck (Austin Zajur), prank bully Tommy Milner (Austin Abrams). When Tommy and his gang chase them in retaliation, the trio flees to a drive-in movie theater, where a young drifter named Ramón hides them in his car. They invite Ramón to explore a local "haunted house" that once belonged to the wealthy Bellows family, who helped found Mill Valley. Inside, they find a book of horror stories written by Sarah Bellows (Kathleen Pollard), who allegedly committed suicide in the house. Having followed the group, Tommy locks them inside along with Ruth, Chuck's sister. They escape, and Stella takes Sarah's book.
Stella discovers a new story, entitled "Harold", being written in Sarah's book. Meanwhile, in reality, an inebriated Tommy is stalked by the titular Harold, his family's scarecrow, after it comes to life. The creature stabs him with a pitchfork, causing Tommy to vomit hay and undergo a violent transformation. Tommy is later reported missing; Stella and Ramón find Harold dressed in Tommy's clothes. Though Stella is convinced that Tommy has been turned into a scarecrow, the others are skeptical.
That night, a new story, "The Big Toe", appears with Auggie as the main character. The pair attempt to warn him about the monster: a zombie searching for its missing toe, which is inside a stew that Auggie unwittingly eats. Auggie disappears after the zombie drags him under his bed. Realizing they are next, the remaining friends attempt to destroy the book; when this proves impossible, they research Sarah's life in hopes of finding a solution. A new story, "The Red Spot", is written. When Ruth discovers a swollen spider bite on her cheek, it explodes and releases hundreds of tiny spiders. Ruth is rescued but is traumatized and placed in a mental institution.
