Here comes the tickle monster!
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.
