Does Scary Stories To Tell In The Dark Have A Post-Credits Scene?

In case you hadn't noticed, we're currently in the midst of a legit golden age for the horror genre, with a fresh scary story hitting the multiplex pretty much every single week. So real is the horror boom that Hollywood studios have even begun marketing creepy-yet-slightly-toned-down genre confections to youth markets in recent years. The latest addition to the PG-13 horror set is the critically adoredGuillermo del Toro-produced Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark — and if the film's opening weekend box office take is any indication, we'd wager you'll be seeing more super-creepy PG-13 fare hitting theaters in the very near future. 

That sort of box office begs the question of whether or not a sequel to Scary Stories will be one of those youth-friendly horror flicks that are certain to find their way to market. That very question has subsequently led many fans of the film (and its beloved source material) to wonder if del Toro and director André Øvredal (TrollhunterThe Autopsy of Jane Doe) might've taken the Marvel route and teased a sequel by attaching a post-credits scene to round one of Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark.

So, does Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark have a post-credits scene?

We can definitively state that no, there is not a post-credits scene included in Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark

That being said, those who do stick around for the credits will be treated to a slick new cover version of the haunting, late-60s psych-rock classic "Season of the Witch," courtesy of the one and only Lana Del Rey, which moviegoers may find cool enough to spend a few more ominous moments in the dark. 

Post-credits teaser or not, Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark is well worth a watch. Critics and fans alike have picked up what del Toro and Øvredal have put down — with one reviewer writing, "If there ever was a case of a film adaptation improving on the original source material, this is it."
