So far we’ve seen two great teasers and one slick trailer for Guillermo Del Toro produced Don’t Be Afraid Of The Dark, and while reviews have been mixed from the Los Angeles Film Festival this weekend, I’m holding on to the hope that it will be good. The picture, which was developed with Miramax but in the wake of the division’s closure will be released by FilmDistrict, was rated R despite filmmaker ambitions to the contrary. “We originally thought we could shoot it as PG-13 without compromising the scares,” Del Toro said. “And then the MPAA came back and gave us a badge of honor. They gave us an R for ‘pervasive scariness.’ We asked them if there’s anything we could do, and they said, ‘Why ruin a perfectly scary movie?'”
Directed by Troy Nixey and starring Guy Pearce, Katie Holmes and Bailee Madison, the film is a remake of a 1973 TV movie.
FilmDistrict has released three clips from the movie and they’re all somewhat creepy. Enjoy!
