One of the heartbreaking news moments of the past few months was seeing Don’t Be Afraid of the Dark – the horror remake from director Troy Nixey and producer Guillermo del Toro – get pushed back into indefinite shelving land.

Fortunately, according to Variety, FilmDistrict has come to the rescue in order to send the film to 2,500 screens on August 12th, complete with its R-rating.

January would have been great (if only to help save the month and let audiences see the scares earlier), but August is better than never. Plus, there’s nothing like a fall release for this kind of horror flick. Rejoice!
