Don't Be Afraid Of The Dark
Guillermo del Toro presents ‘Don’t Be Afraid of the Dark,’ a horror film
starring Katie Holmes, Guy Pearce and Bailee Madison, directed by Troy
Nixey. Based on the 1973 telefilm that del Toro believes is the scariest TV
production ever made, the story follows Sally (Madison), a young girl who
moves to Rhode Island to live with her father (Pearce) and his new
girlfriend (Holmes) in the 19th-century mansion they are restoring. While
exploring the house, Sally starts to hear voices coming from creatures in
the basement whose hidden agenda is to claim her as one of their own.
Akin to del Toro’s ‘Pan’s Labyrinth,’ ‘Don’t Be Afraid of the Dark’ focuses on
a young girl’s struggle against menacing and terrifying forces.
