Review: ‘Scary Stories’ is a likable Frankenstein of a movie

“Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark” is, likably, a Frankenstein of a movie that stitches together tales from the cultishly beloved 1980s book series by Alvin Schwartz and illustrated by Stephen Gammell. Schwartz’s stories, culled from folklore and urban legend, are mostly just a page or ...

Review: A spinoff happily spins its wheels in ‘Hobbs & Shaw’
