Comic-Con Trailer: Don’t Be Afraid of the Dark

Posted August 3rd, 2010 at 9:51 am

Believe it or not there are still several films that debuted trailers or footage at Comic-Con that have yet to roll anything out to the public. One of those was Don’t Be Afraid of the Dark which has now delivered the trailer that was shown at its panel. Written and produced by Guillermo Del Toro it is a remake of the 1973 made-for-TV movie about a young girl sent to live with her father and his new girlfriend only to discover that creatures in the home want to claim her as one of their own.

This was one of the films that no one knew much about going in but it played really well to the crowd. Del Toro was enthusiastic about it and how it would be a truly scary film, something that is rare these days. The footage that was shown along with this trailer would seem to support that. Starring Katie Holmes and Guy Pearce Don’t Be Afraid of the Dark is slated to open on January 21st 2011.
