When Alex (Winslow Fegley), a boy obsessed with scary stories, is trapped by an evil witch (Krysten Ritter) in her magical apartment, and must tell a scary story every night to stay alive, he teams up with another prisoner, Yasmin (Lidya Jewett), to find a way to escape.

Maybe if you're like 8 years old you might enjoy it, but as an adult this was a boring mess.

The premise seems fairly sketchy. A witch would have to be pretty hard up for scary stories to have to rely on two little kids to write them for her. How good could those stories be?

At least Kristen Ritter looks hot in this, even if it seems like she was the runner up for a role that Anne Hathaway turned down.

Koby, bummed to hear this is a big bore. I know this is geared towards kids but I admit that I watch films like this on Netflix all the time. It seems well cast but I guess the execution of the story is lacking.
