Don’t Be Afraid Of The Dark Poster

A huge thanks to Fangoria for this look at the poster of the upcoming, Don’t Be Afraid Of The Dark. This remake of the original 1973 is produced by Guillermo del Toro (Chronos, Hellboy, Pan’s Labyrinth) and directed by Troy Nixie (Latchkey’s Lament) and stars Katie Holmes (The Gift, Batman Begins), Bailee Madison (Bridge to Terabitha), and Guy Pearce (L.A. Confidential, Memento, The Time Machine). Though the poster says the film will hit the Silver Screens on August 12th it will actually come out on the 26th.

  1. Yeah, all I know is if the teaser trailer was any indication to the scares I can expect, Crit, I better be holding on to the seat. Ha, ha. :)

    I saw the original version of this on TV when it originally aired (I was about 10 at the time). It scared the hell out of me back then and I never forgot it. After a lot of searching, I finally recently got ahold of it again. It has a few hokey moments, but for the most part, I think it held up surprisingly well.
