There’s been a lot coming your way from Troy Nixey’s remake Don’t Be Afraid of the Dark. We’ve had creepy trailers and a few spooky posters, and now we have a set of ten images from the movie for you. Granted the images do not add much to the creepy factor of the film, but what they do show is the amazing base for the film. You can’t beat a horror about ghosts and ghouls set in a creepy old mansion in the countryside now, can you? Don’t Be Afraid of the Dark looks even more like a good old fashioned horror yarn with an emphasis on atmosphere and chills which, given the grand setting, should work just perfectly.
Directed by Troy Nixey and starring Guy Pearce, Katie Holmes and Bailee Madison, the chiller is also written and produced by none other than Guillermo Del Toro. You can see the trailer here http://horrorcultfilms.co.uk/2011/05/stop-all-that-whispering-the-dont-be-afraid-of-the-dark-trailer-is-here/
“The pic follows Sally (Bailee Madison), a young girl who moves to Rhode Island to live with her father (Guy Pearce) and his new girlfriend (Katie Holmes) in the 19th-century mansion they are restoring. Having stumbled upon the mansion’s hidden basement, Sally starts hearing voices calling out from the bolted ash pit, imploring her to open it. Sally obliges and unwittingly unleashes something so terrible, so unthinkable, that everyone’s life – hers most of all – is placed in immediate and grave danger.“
Check out the gallery below for the images, hope you enjoy them!
