The film is directed by André Ovredal , but is produced and written by Guillermo Del Toro , based on the series of books of the same name by author Alvin Schwartz . The story of Del Toro from which the screenplay of the film is based, it is inevitable to identify it as another work of the multi-award-winning Mexican filmmaker , since despite not being directed by him, he has his style and that love of detail and creation of monsters
For someone who does not usually see thrillers or horror, this was an exquisite film, undoubtedly, keeps you on the edge of your seat from the beginning, not wanting to miss a single detail of the adventure that the young protagonists live, and enjoying every "jump scare" , even if it literally causes you to bite your nails or hold on to the person next to you to overcome every scare .
The design of the monsters is to stand out, and while some generate pure terror , others cause the famous " ñañaras ", and others make you want not to look, but in the end you end up spying between your fingers to not miss the monstrosity of these characters that are an essential part of the tape.
According to the critics, we had nothing worthwhile this year in the horror and suspense genre, not until this production by Guillermo Del Toro exceeds all expectations, and with minimal imperfections, satisfies critics and all kinds of public that has had the opportunity to enjoy this film.
