Guillermo del Toro is a master of scares, and he’s responsible for some in Don’t Be Afraid of the Dark. Del Toro co-wrote the horror film with Matthew Robbins, based on the 1973 TV movie. The two also paired on del Toro’s scarefest Mimic.
In Don’t Be Afraid of the Dark, a girl (Bailee Madison, Just Go With It) moves into a 19th century mansion with her father (Guy Pearce, The King’s Speech) and his new girlfriend (Katie Holmes, The Kennedys) while they restore the building. As she explores the house, young Sally hears voices coming from creatures in the basement, who are planning to claim her as one of their own. Let the spooks begin…
Del Toro turned the directing duties for the movie to first-time feature film helmer Troy Nixey. But it was a good swap. »
KidsPickFlicks at Variety's Power of Youth
I was fortunate enough to be invited to cover the red carpet for Variety for their annual Power of Youth event, a block party where Young Hollywood comes out to demonstrate their strength in the world of philanthropy. It may be surprising to learn that almost all of the celebrity kids have at least one cause they support, many have several. Moreover, some kid stars are very hands on with their involvement. Most fascinating is that often young actors and singers are guided toward charity work by an influential co-worker or associate.
Hailee Steinfeld said her True Grit co-star Jeff Bridges told her about Share Our Strength. She was deeply moved by Bridges' personal involvement and committment, particularly to their No Kid Hungry campaign, and she jumped on board as well.

Don’t Be Afraid Of The Dark is a remake of the original 1973 television film of the same name and is one of the few horror film remakes I have been eagerly awaited.
That Guillermo Del Toro serves as co-producer and writer for it sold me on the film, as that man has crafted some deeply disturbing dark fantasy works).
I’ll also state that I have not seen the original film, so It’s not something I hold dear to me, so I have no qualms with a remake here, as I would with, say, A Nightmare on Elm Street.
Eight-year old Sally (Bailee Madison) has been sent from her mother to live with her father Alex (Guy Pearce) and his girlfriend Kim (Katie Holmes) in this absolutely stunning 19th century mansion in Rhode Island.

Director: Troy Nixey.
The reason why Guillermo del Toro’s Don’t Be Afraid of the Dark does not elicit chills is that this film is focusing in on a different kind of terror: the destruction of the family unit. To show how these goblin-like tooth fairies from deep beneath the earth duck in and out of the shadows, and causing terror is not the problem.
Even in the film’s introduction, old man Emerson Blackwood reveals that he has to kill in the hopes that he will get back his son. He never did, and becomes the creatures’ next victim. Years later, the story shifts to introducing Sally (Bailee Madison), sent away by her mother to go live with her dad Alex (Guy Pearce). Presumably they are divorced, since the father has a co-worker, »
