The third trailer for Guillermo del Toro’s Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark is here, this time focusing on the Jangly Man. As the name implies, this monster is absurdly flexible — and what makes him even more terrifying is that he’s played by a real contortionist instead of CGI.
Jangly Man is just one of the monsters that terrorizes the small town of Mill Valley in 1968. When a group of teenagers discover a book written by a young girl, the monsters inside come to life
del Toro co-wrote the adaptation of the book from your childhood along with Daniel and Kevin Hageman. André Øvredal, an acclaimed Swedish director, is helming the film.
Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark hits theaters Aug. 9.
