Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark (2019)

August 19th, 2019 by unkle lancifer · 6 Comments

A bunch of years ago HarperCollins got the not so bright idea to release an updated version of Alvin Schwartz’s classic SCARY STORIES TO TELL IN THE DARK, replacing Stephen Gammell’s haunting illustrations with less disturbing imagery. To say it didn’t go over too well with fans of the book is putting it lightly. In […]

Traumafession:: Jayme K. Author of Disorderly on Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark

August 6th, 2013 by unkle lancifer · 4 Comments

I spent a good portion of my childhood being frightened by, what are in retrospect, really odd things. The weird cyborg creature from the end of Superman 3 comes to mind, but that wasn’t the number one thing that freaked me out as a kid. That honor would have to go to Stephen Gammell‘s illustrations […]

Traumafessions :: Reader PhantomWerewolf on Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark

January 19th, 2009 by aunt john · 12 Comments

Growing up I watched a lot of horror movies; guess you could say I grew up with them. My cousins are not the bravest of folk and when they rented horror movies I was “forced” to watch them as well. This started when I was about 4 years old. I’ve watched everything from ‘80s slashers, […]

TRAUMAFESSIONS :: Reader Tony on Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark

January 2nd, 2008 by aunt john · 4 Comments

Back in the day, there was a short series of old school horror story anthologies called SCARY STORIES TO TELL IN THE DARK. Now, if the stories didn’t scare you shitless as a kid (and they usually did), then Stephen Gammel’s horrifying illustrations sure as hell got the job done. To this very day, there’s […]

Ghost Stories for Christmas!

December 24th, 2014 by unkle lancifer · 6 Comments

I’ll be watching both Black Christmases this holiday season along with assorted Silent Nights but I decided to take a break as far as posting about them. I feel that anyone who has done a “Help Mrs. Mac Find Her Hidden Hooch” puzzle has done their due. After seven years the idea of writing about […]

Since I have discovered this site last week, I’ve become completely addicted! Thanks for bringing up so many memories of my childhood and alerting me to movies I should have already seen. But moving on, I have three traumas to submit. I’m afraid I don’t have a lot on any of them, but you and […]

Name That Trauma:: Joshua G. on a Sinister Shed Story

June 7th, 2012 by unkle lancifer · 4 Comments

Hi! I’ve always been an avid reader, and as a kid in the 80s I devoured YA/Children’s short horror fiction anthologies by the dozen (obviously, Alvin Schwartz’s SCARY STORIES TO TELL IN THE DARK were at the top of the list!) I still have a handful of them, but I’m trying to track down one […]

Traumafessions :: Reader Alex on Goosbumps “Stay Out of the Basement” (Book)

May 6th, 2012 by aunt john · 1 Comment

Hey, Kindertrauma! This is my first Traumafession and it’s a little spontaneous. I just caught a glimpse of the cover to STAY OUT OF THE BASEMENT and it took me back, way back. I don’t know if I even read this book, because the story I’d made up about its contents has only a few […]

2018 was a damn great year for horror films. I don’t have the mental capacity to make a ranking list, so here are some of my favorite horror movie/TV memories of the past 365 days… PYEWACKET I can’t resist this simple, straightforward telling of the dire consequences of negative wish fulfillment. It plays out like […]
