Synopsis


Don't Be Afraid of the Dark
A young girl inadvertently unleashes a race of ancient monsters while exploring her father's 19th century mansion in this horror remake written by Guillermo del Toro and Matthew Robbins, and directed by newcomer Troy Nixey. Introverted Sally Hurst (Bailee Madison) has just moved in with her father, Alex (Guy Pearce), and his girlfriend, Kim (Katie Holmes), when she realizes that their sprawling estate holds its fair share of secrets. Descending into the depths of the house, Sally gains access to a secret lower level that has lain undisturbed for nearly a century, when the original builder vanished without a trace. When Sally accidentally opens the gateway that kept the creatures locked up tight, she realizes that in order to prevent them from destroying her family she must convince her skeptical father that monsters really exist. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi

    A Surprisingly Good Re-Make

    This is a re-make of a favorite film of mine which appeared on television in 1973 and starred Kim Darby. I haven't seen it in years but I can still hear the voices. This film captures the flavor of the original film very well, embellishes, and improves upon in many respects. I won't go into too much detail as to ruin your experience which for me was very enjoyable. Blu-ray presentation is excellent.

    Saw this on Netflix and enjoyed it very much. Best Buy for a very good price so I picked it up, and I was glad I did.. The blu-ray is a big upgrade over the streaming video! It looks and sounds great. Fun movie -- creepy, campy fun. Not any gore, just a good old-fashioned haunted house/monster movie. Well acted and well made. Miles ahead of the of TV movie for everything except nostalgia. Go get it!
