Over the course of its three-volume run, Alvin Schwartz’s Scary Stories introduced children to gothic tales of terror with notoriously ghastly illustrations making them the most banned books of our time. This documentary follows the author’s son, Peter Schwartz, in an exploration of the collection’s legacy, folklore, and many controversies with interviews from iconic children’s authors R.L. Stine, Debbie Dadey, Bruce Coville, and Q.L. Pearce. Details
