For a long time you couldn't actually get these books with the original illustrations (other than used, which wasn't hard). They were apparently deemed "too scary" in the 90s and replaced with some bland digitally painted stuff. As far as I know the originals were out of print until a year or two ago.

Not really interested in this movie but I love the original books even though I missed them as a kid and didn't see them until I was 14 or 15 (which is too bad, I'd have loved them when I was little, too).

It really showed how the star of the books was the art, not the stories.

Never saw that particular bowdlerization; the changed edition I remember came out in 2012 and had tamer illos by Brett Helquist of Series of Unfortunate Events fame.

I also have a memory of how the art was banned, and that there was controversy; are the originals still available?

The film looks boring, in an oughts way and not a 90s way.

Every Halloween for the last few years I've checked to see if they were back in print so we could get them for the Halloween book display at work. Last year they brought them back as a three volume set (I didn't even know about the third book!).

The originals are pretty cheap used, too, although I only have a beat up copy of the first one I found in the trash a few years ago.

So yeah, either way they're not too hard to get. The originals have better covers and maybe slightly better printing, but it's not like, say, the expensive Bloom County reissues that look like low resolution scans from 1995 and cost 10x what a good copy of any of the original books with all the extra gimmicks included goes for. Just maybe slightly less sharp.

Disappointed to see Doug Jones isn't involved. It's just not Guillermo del Toro horror if Doug Jones' lanky ass isn't cavorting around.

He’s Tim Burton without Planet of the Apes weighing him down. Just 200 pounds weighing him down.

He’s Tim Burton before he discovered CGI or Disney.

I like everything he's done except for Shape of Water, which was a tremendous steaming pile of shit.
