You ready to be scared this morning? If not, you better make sure the lights are on and you've got someone nearby to defend you! MySpace has debuted the first full teaser trailer for Don't Be Afraid of the Dark, the horror remake produced by Guillermo del Toro, directed by first-timer Troy Nixey, and starring Katie Holmes, Guy Pearce and the young Bailee Madison. This is the same teaser footage straight from Hall H at Comic-Con and its a true teaser in the sense that we don't get to see a lot of footage, but we do get a glimpse at the world and it looks fantastic, like a true full-on horror production. I'm already very excited to see this!
