Netflix has released the trailer for their upcoming film “Nightbooks” based on the horror-fantasy children’s book by J.A. White. The book has been adapted by Mikki Daughtry and Tobias Iaconis (“Five Feet Apart”, “The Curse of La Llorona”) and is directed by David Yarovesky (“Brightburn”). The family film follows Alex (Winslow Fegley), a boy obsessed with scary stories, who gets trapped by a witch (Krysten Ritter) in her modern, magical New York City apartment. When he realises that his original hair-raising tales are the only thing keeping him safe, he teams up with another prisoner, Yasmin (Lidya Jewett), to find a way to escape.
The film arrives on September 15th and is rated 12 in the UK and TV-PG in the USA. You can see the trailer below.
