Movies: Don't Be Afraid of the Dark (2011)

The eerie remake of the 1973 television movie 'Don't Be Afraid of the Dark' is set to be released on August 26th 2011. The plot centres around Sally Hirst's (Bailee Madison) terrifying experience with creatures that stalk her after she moves into a new house with her father (Guy Pearce) and his girlfriend (Katie Holmes). 

The film is co-produced & co-written by Guillermo del Toro and directed by comic book artist / creator of the short film 'Latchkey's Lament', Troy Nixey and, whilst Katie Holmes and Guy Pearce being the adult leads does put me off somewhat, perhaps Nixey can bring out the best in them. The trailers (the one posted below for example) do seem promising,  but I have to admit that a large proportion of my faith in this movie comes from del Toro's involvement in it.
