Hey Gang! The first trailer for the Guillermo del Toro produced film Don't Be Afraid of the the Dark has been unleashed today, and it's awesome! The trailer and footage we saw for this film at Comic-Con was one of the best things I witnessed at the Con. I wasn't sure what to expect from this horror movie, but it looks incredibly scary, and I can't wait to see it! The film actually got an 'R' rating for being excessively scary, how freakin' awesome is that!
The movie is a remake of an old 1970's TV film of the same and it was co-written by del Toro and Matthew Robbins. The movie was directed by first time feature film director Troy Nixey, and it stars Katie Holmes, Guy Pearce, Bailee Madison, and Jack Thompson.
Check out the trailer for the film below and let us know what you think! Hope you enjoy it!
Producers Guillermo del Toro (“Pan’s Labyrinth,” “The Orphanage”) and Mark Johnson (“Chronicles of Narnia”) join forces to deliver “Don’t Be Afraid of the Dark,” a tale of hair-raising, spine-chilling horror.
Sally Hurst (Bailee Madison), a lonely, withdrawn child, has just arrived in Rhode Island to live with her father Alex (Guy Pearce) and his new girlfriend Kim (Katie Holmes) at the 19th-century mansion they are restoring. While exploring the sprawling estate, the young girl discovers a hidden basement, undisturbed since the strange disappearance of the mansion’s builder a century ago. When Sally unwittingly lets loose a race of ancient, dark-dwelling creatures who conspire to drag her down into the mysterious house’s bottomless depths, she must convince Alex and Kim that it’s not a fantasy—before the evil lurking in the dark consumes them all.
When a little girl (Bailee Madison) is sent to live with her father (Guy Pearce) and his girlfriend (Katie Holmes) in the old mansion they are renovating, she unwittingly unleashes malevolent creatures bent on destroying all of them.
