Another Creepy New 'Don't Be Afraid of the Dark' Poster Peeks Out
Fear is never just make believe. I can't wait to see this movie! I love the atmosphere of it, it seems genuinely creepy, and I'm nervous about being scared as all hell when I go see it. Empire has debuted another poster for Don't Be Afraid of the Dark, produced by Guillermo del Toro, directed by Troy Nixey, starring Guy Pearce, Katie Holmes and the young Bailee Madison. This awesome poster features art similar to the official US poster for this movie, which is taller and has the hands going up, not down like here. However, I like the placement of the girl in this one much more, it's just eerie and truly chilling. You can view the poster below!
If you haven't seen the latest frightening trailer for Don't Be Afraid of the Dark, be sure to catch that here.
Don't Be Afraid of the Dark was directed by up-and-coming filmmaker and comic book artist Troy Nixey, of only the Latchkey's Lament short previously. The script was co-written by Matthew Robbins (Dragonslayer, Mimic, The Concert) and Guillermo del Toro (Hellboy, Pan's Labyrinth The Hobbit). This is a remake of the 1973 TV movie Don't Be Afraid of the Dark directed by John Newland starring Kim Darby. FilmDistrict, who took over for Miramax, is finally releasing Don't Be Afraid of the Dark on August 26th this summer.
