trailer for_the_Guillermo del Toro-produced and co-written Don't Be Afraid of the Dark is now online. Directed by Troy Nixey, the horror thriller stars Katie Holmes, Guy Pearce and Bailee Madison.
Don't Be Afraid of the Dark centers on a young girl (Madison), sent to live with her father and his new girlfriend. Sally Hurst (Bailee Madison), a lonely, withdrawn child, has just arrived in Rhode Island to live with her father Alex (Guy Pearce) and his new girlfriend Kim (Katie Holmes) at the 19th-century mansion they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.
