Must Watch: Chilling Official Trailer for 'Don't Be Afraid of the Dark'
Come and join us… A brand new full-length trailer for Troy Nixey's chilling new Don't Be Afraid of the Dark movie, with Guillermo del Toro as producer, has arrived online courtesy of Empire. FilmDistrict is finally putting this out on August 26th. We'd only seen an early teaser before, but now we have the official trailer, as this is the US version as well as the UK one from Optimum. The film is about a young girl, played by Bailee Madison, who goes to live with her father (Guy Pearce) and his girlfriend (Katie Holmes) in a big old house. But this house has some secrets. This looks insanely scary for a new horror flick. Can't wait!
