The first trailer for the Guillermo del Toro produced "Don't be Afraid of the Dark" has debuted online. The film stars Katie Holmes, Guy Pearce and Baillee Madison. This is a remake of the 1973 TV movie "Don't Be Afraid of the Dark."
The film centers on a family living in a 19th-century mansion, which they are renovating, when young Sally (Bailee Madison) 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 (Pearce) and Kim (Holmes) that it's not a fantasy-before the evil lurking in the dark consumes them all.
This is best watched in complete darkness for the full scare effect.
