Movie: Don’t Be Afraid of the Dark (2011)
“Don’t Be Afraid of the Dark” – I’m not, I’m afraid of what could be in the dark. And that goes for many others like me. This movie exploits a known “vulnerability” of many kids and even grown-ups, the fear of the dark. How many times have you been scared to death in your dark room because of a noise you thought you heard? Plenty is the answer here, and Gullermo del Toro’s movie will make you remember those dark times.
“Don’t Be Afraid of the Dark” is a remake of the horror film with the same name released in 1973. The story is centered around a young girl, Bailee Madison, that’s sent to live with her father (Guy Pearce) and his new girlfriend (Katie Holmes, long time since I’ve seen her in a movie). She starts discovering awful creatures that live in the house with them, and even if at the beginning they seem friendly to her, soon she’ll find out they’re not actually bunnies.
