‘Don’t Be Afraid of the Dark’ Trailer Provides Much Needed Horror for the Summer

This summer seems light on one thing: horror movies. While there is the surprisingly awesome looking Fright Night remake coming out, that looks to be far more interested in being fun and cool, rather than moody and intense. Where are the creepy horror films this season? There seems to be none this summer… except one that’s been flying under the radar for far too long: Don’t Be Afraid of the Dark. The Troy Nixey directed, Guillermo del Toro produced family vs. monsters film has taken its sweet time getting to the big screen, but come August, we’ll finally get a true horror film for the summer.

This lengthy trailer certainly does display great promise. The atmosphere is tense. Nixey’s style is both gothic and beautiful. The creatures look menacing, and their whispery voices certainly help. And a film starring Guy Pearce will always grab my attention.

Like you dear readers, I never once thought I’d be anticipating a Katie Holmes film… but here I am.

Don’t Be Afraid of the Dark opens in theaters on August 26th.
