    Hey look, here’s another very scary trailer for the Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark adaptation, featuring a cover of Donovan’s “Season of the Witch” by singer and poet Lana Del Rey. Like all right-thinking 90s kids, I was terrified by the covers of these books as a child, so I’m delighted by the high creep of this trailer. It even includes shots of some of the aforementioned trauma drawings!

    I also appreciate Lana Del Rey (slightly) pivoting to childhood nightmares. Great work all around!
