Top customer reviews
Many of us grew up with the Scary stories to tell in the Dark collection by Alvin Schwartz and were haunted by the gorgeous and creepy artwork of Stephen Gammell. Stephen's artwork is part of what made these books so haunting, so notorious. And now they have brutally altered these books beyond reprieve.
Not only did the cowards quietly change the artwork, after standing by the artistic integrity of this collection for thirty years, bu they do it for the thirtieth anniversary edition on-ward!
To change this is like changing the original Dr. Seuss Illustrations or the original Alice in Wonderland illustrations. it's just not right. This was a shameful movie by a cowardly company giving in to long standing pressure that the pictures were "too scary."
Brett Helquist is not a bad artist. But he was used here as a pawn for an overly politically correct move to make a collection of scary stories "tamer" and "more acceptable." A move that would have insulted the likes of Ray Bradbury.
If there is any integrity left at all they will restore the Stephen Gammell illustrations.
