With gothic horror back in vogue at the moment, it comes as no surprise that writer and producer Guillermo Del Toro, always with one eye on the zeitgeist, has chosen to remake the 1973 TV movie Don’t Be Afraid Of The Dark, about a newly renovated house with a bad case of the gremlins. With the film, directed by comic book artist Troy Nixey making his debut feature released on Blu-ray and DVD this week, here is our review.
Sally Hurst (Bailee Madison), a young girl, moves to Rhode Island to live with her distant father, Alex (Guy Pearce) and his new girlfriend, Kim (Katie Holmes) in the 19th century gothic mansion they are restoring. While exploring the house, Sally starts to hear voices coming from creatures in the basement whose hidden agenda is to claim her as one of their own.
