"You can practically see the impassioned pencil shadings in a fleshy ghoul like the Pale Lady, who slowly stalks the red-lit hallways of a hospital before she hugs her victim to death." - 08/07/2019 Hollywood Reporter


"[T]he movie faithfully re-creates the peak moments of half a dozen of Schwartz’ most popular stories..." - 08/07/2019 Variety


3 stars out of 4 -- "From the astonishing opening montage featuring Donovan's SEASON OF THE WITCH to crawling spiders and stalker-y ghouls, the bite-sized thrills of SCARY STORIES pack plenty of jolts..." - 08/09/2019 RogerEbert.com


"Whenever SCARY STORIES is prioritizing the scary stories, it becomes a lively bit of supernatural-slasher hokum." - 08/08/2019 A.V. Club


"Ovredal respects the original illustrations of Stephen Gammell, whose hand is visible in the grotesquely contorted expressions of a scarecrow and in a trollish woman with a face like papier-mâché." - 08/08/2019 New York Times
