I watched Nightbooks on Netflix last night and was pleasantly surprised. I have never been a huge fan of child themed horror movies because I like my horror movies to be very scary. That being said, sometimes the storyline trumps the child aspect.
This movie follows Alex, a scary story fan who writes his own scary stories. When he is captured by a witch he is forced to tell her scary stories every night for the rest of his life. This particular witch finds children with different skills and traps them in her house forcing them to use their skills for her benefit. Once Alex runs out of story ideas he must find a way out of captivity. In the process, he discovers that the witch is stealing her powers from another witch. Not just any witch, the witch from Hansel and Gretel. It's a crazy concept and I don't think I described it too well but just believe me.
The movie is really good and I definitely think you should watch it. I also think you should follow me @evanontheradio on Instagram.
