The major genre outing lighting up theaters this week is DON'T BE AFRAID OF THE DARK - the Guillermo del Toro produced, Troy Nixey directed haunted house chiller. And while my anticipation of such has waned a little since hearing Arrow's word on the film, I still want to see this sucker in theaters before summer's end. If you agree, cop a peek at the new international one-sheet for the flick!
With support from Alan Dale, Jack Thompson, Julia Blake, Emelia Burns, Nicholas Bell, Dylan Young, Edwina Ritchard and Garry McDonald:
DON'T BE AFRAID OF THE DARK follows Sally Hurst (Bailee Madison), a lonely, withdrawn child, who has just arrived in Rhode Island to live with her father Alex (Guy Pearce) and his new girlfriend Kim (Katie Holmes) at the 19th-century mansion they are restoring. While exploring the sprawling estate, the young girl discovers a hidden basement, undisturbed since the strange disappearance of the mansion's builder a century ago. When Sally unwittingly lets loose a race of ancient, dark-dwelling creatures who conspire to drag her down into the mysterious house's bottomless depths, she must convince Alex and Kim that it's not a fantasy—before the evil lurking in the dark consumes them all.
This Friday...you entering the DARK or what?
