Rating: 4. Feb 11, Kaelin O rated it it was ok Shelves: horror. This book was laughable to me. First of all, please use Google if you do not know how to spell words like Binghamton or Ithaca. Sloppy editing alone was enough to make me dislike this book, but there was more. It's not scary. I appreciate the attempt to make newer versions of older stories and create a new twist, but this is full of endings that seemed tacked on and apparently added more for shock value than good storytelling.
The drawings are very well done, but they are not much different from This book was laughable to me. The drawings are very well done, but they are not much different from those in "Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark.
Obviously this artist has talent and I do not want to minimize that, but it's clear he could have done a lot more and in his own style.
The story about the girls swimming in the pond I found sexist and gross, with the ending idea similar to the story about the guy locked in the truck, trying to get out the title escapes me. I'd rather just reread "Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark" and relive part of my childhood.
Great idea, but just not executed very well. View 2 comments. Dec 08, Audra ouija. These stories and illustrations were created in homage to that classic childhood book series, Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark. Or maybe these stories were just American kid thing? All I know is that those books were a rite of passage when I was growing up. The stories These stories and illustrations were created in homage to that classic childhood book series, Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark. Nightmare inducing, so say the least.
And of course, Harold. The stories are in definite homage to the original Schwartz tales, though I thought they lacked his style, the panache of his delivery on the punch lines especially. Overall, I would probably rate most of the stories themselves in style and substance at around a 3. What really punches up the action on these is the artwork. They are creepy, dark, and perfectly complement the stories, taking them to the next level. If they can handle the original, these stories are fine for them too.
If you know someone who grew up with the Scary Stories books, this would be an awesome gift to give them a flashback to their childhood. My thanks to Cemetery Gates for sending me a copy of this one to read and review. Sep 12, Marielle Davis rated it it was amazing Shelves: horror , huge-plot-twist , short-stories.
The author says right off the bat that he was inspired by old campfire tales and those classic horror short stories that were popular in the 70s, 80s, and early 90s. While it is true that inspiration is taken from them, and a few stories are taken whole cloth from old legends, what comes out is an entirely new set of tales. There's a wonderful mixture of old urban legends given a modern day twist.

Standouts include a subversion of the usual "young women are really evil witches" tale, a "drugs are bad" tale, and a horrifying one that stuck with me.
I will simply say it involves a dentist drill, worms, and kombucha. Yes, it is as horrifying as I am implying. This is a great example of how to take what has come before and add a new twist to it. Take some risks and it can really pay off. Just because you see where the story is going won't keep the hairs from rising up on the back of your neck!
The stories are modernized rip offs of old tales, and half baked ideas, riddled with characters lacking simple logic and depth inserted into poorly thought out stories that hop to lazy conclusions just so the story "wraps up" with a "scary" or "surprising" twist ending.

Brhel and Sullivan tried to cash in on the nastalga of the childhood scary stories, and write it for adults. However, they wrote it for a child's sensibility and added a couple of curse words to make it "adult.
Not forgetting to mention the often sexist stereotypes littered through the entire "book". I got so frustrated with all of the oversite and ignoring such simple details. Adding insult to injury, they though extending this mess by adding two already published works of theirs to the end skipped over the last two stories because I already sat through almost pages of junk already.
Not sure if this was done as a promo or marketing stunt for their other works or a sad attempt to read a page limit. Do yourself a favor and just read the original scary stories to tell in the dark. Jan 09, Spencer rated it liked it. Chad Wehrle's illustrations are fantastic though!
Mar 14, Rhonda Rankin rated it liked it. A group of short tales with amazing art. This is appropriate for young adults It is erie not Stephen King scarry. Like a family telling stories around a campfire.
Dec 17, Lilyn G. My co-host and I buddy-read this book together for review, and our thoughts were so very similar that we combined our reviews rather than writing up separate ones.
She will be posting the full review, so I'm just going to hit the main points. Our biggest issue was being unable to tell if we were the correct audience for the book or not. I've never read Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark. She has. Sometimes it felt like the author was trying to spook us and it was done quite successfully. Other t My co-host and I buddy-read this book together for review, and our thoughts were so very similar that we combined our reviews rather than writing up separate ones.
Other times, it just felt like it was nostalgia. The feelings bounced around enough that we were both kind of iffy at the end. I thought I'd mention a few of my favorites. Autoplay 'On' We were agreed on this being a very good one. The way it plays to modern fears is perfect and Gracie mentioned she has noticed a rise in stories of creepy, cursed or haunted YouTube channels and most of them are very good.
It's the one we could pinpoint the most as being 'adult horror'. The situation and the choices made I don't think a younger person would understand. What would you do when it came down to supporting your family versus putting up with an asshole boss. EP Connect Score. Show Details. Log in or go premium to post and read comments Go premium.

Marcus Olsson. Mattias Persson. Sebastian Bergholt. It seemed to work but I was trying to squeeze out more dmg so, I stopped using it. I've been meaning to test it again now that I have all the gear. I think it could be viable. Give it a shot and see if it works for you. Extra elites are going to be more valuable then the dmg reduction. Unless, of course you're just dying a lot.
I just tested it again in a few 90's. It works but I kept failing the rifts by around 30 seconds. But it's going to be really dependent on whether you get good pylon spawns with non-juggernaut elites. I think switching to Dark Reaping would be a really solid option if you are doing speed 80's. Which LoN build can go higher you think? Which helps a lot against the RG; the biggest weakness of this build. Corpse Lance is by far the strongest skill the Necro has, nothing comes close to it, so its pretty unfair to compare a pure Corpse Explosion build to one that uses Lance.
The difference between the two builds its probably only a few levels tho. I would recommend switching Eternal Torment to another passive if you decide to make these changes.
