Miramax has released the trailer for Don't Be Afraid of the Dark, a horror film remake written and co-produced by scare guru Guillermo del Toro. I saw this first at Comic-Con (don't be jealous, it doesn't suit you), and I'll admit, the last part made me jump in my seat. But I'm still totally 100% man. They also screened a clip that dealt with teeth and a hammer. Use your imagination. Nope, it was still cooler than that.
Don't Be Afraid of the Dark centers on a young girl who is sent to live with her father and his new girlfriend, and if that wasn't bad enough, she discovers creatures in her new home who want to claim her as one of their own. It's not to be confused with the old Nickelodeon show "Are You Afraid of the Dark?" even though I'm sure you can find almost the exact story in the archives.
Don't Be Afraid of the Dark hits theaters January 21, 2011.
Check out the trailer after the jump…
Director: Troy Nixey
Cast: Guy Pearce, Katie Holmes
Synopsis: A young girl sent to live with her father and his new girlfriend discovers creatures in her new home who want to claim her as one of their own.
Release Date: January 21, 2011
When the plug was pulled on Miramax last year, a few films were sent to the dreaded Disney Vault with little hope of every seeing the light of day. But there is good news for horror fans today. Don't Be Afraid of the Dark, the Guillermo del Toro-penned and Troy Nixey-directed R-rated remake of the 70's TV movie classic, will break free from its imprisonment. No longer will it be forced to pay protection money to such D-Vault tough-asses as Tinker Bell and the Fairy Prince and Tigger's Eighth Movie.The remake stars Guy Pearce and Katie Holmes as a couple who are placed at risk when Pearce's daughter accidentally unleashes malevolent creatures in the old mansion they've just moved into. Given the R-rating and del Toro's involvement, this could shape up to be pretty creepy. Though I'm sure Mike Tyson left things far scarier behind when he abandoned his mansion. (EW)
