Trailer Watch: Don’t Be Afraid of the Dark

One of Guillermo del Toro umpty-million producing credits is nearly out, and in case you didn’t see it over the weekend, Yahoo! Movies has brought us the trailer for it.

Troy Nixey’s remake of the 1973 TV movie Don’t Be Afraid of the Dark stars Katie Holmes, Guy Pearce and Bailee Madison as a family that moves into a house and finds that they are not alone. (Ooooooh.) It’s creepy fun stuff, and apparently the MPAA even agrees, because gave it an R rating for “pervasive scariness.”

Don’t Be Afraid of the Dark hits theaters on August 26, 2011.

UPDATED (5/31): I’ve swapped out the Yahoo! Movies video with the official YouTube one courtesy of Film District. Check out the film’s Facebook page at

  1. Well, I`m one of the 0.5% of the population who thought that Pan`s Labyrinth was a completely absurd, incredibly unbelieveble, utterly simplistic high school play with good make up, so this kind of stuff doesn`t really excite me.

    Finding the whispery voices to be really scary.

    Will definately see this one.
