WHERE THE SCARY THINGS ARE (2022) Preview of teen horror



‘They went looking for trouble… But trouble found them.’
Where the Scary Things Are is a 2022 horror film about a group of teenagers that discover a hideous mutant and exploit it via the internet.

Written, co-produced and directed by B. Harrison Smith (The Special; Death House). Produced by Phillip B. Goldfine, Doug Henderson, Matt Nease, Chad Oliver and Tom Van Herwarde.

The movie stars Paul Cottman, Michael Cervantes, Peter Cote, Quinn Andrew Fickes, Selina Flanscha, Oliver Givens and Emma Lim.

Ayla and her high-school friends discover a hideous, semi-human mutant. They keep it prisoner and shoot repulsive viral videos. However, the gang’s hunger for “likes” drives them to film the beast performing murderous acts.

When one boy sees that Ayla is using the monster’s gruesome violence to settle her own vendettas, he threatens to tell the authorities. But is he too late to save his friends?

Where the Scary Things Are will be available on Digital and DVD on June 28, 2022.

Where the Scary Things Are examines the dark nature of post-Columbine kids and their growing lack of empathy in the internet age. It is a dark take on the 80s ‘kids in weird circumstances’ such as Stand By Me, The Goonies, Stephen King’s IT. There are also homages to modern media such as Super 8 and Stranger Things.
