Latest ‘Afraid of the Dark’ Clip Gets Into Sally’s Comfort Zone

Think a teddy bear is going to save you from a horde of little demons running around your house? Think again. In the latest clip from Troy Nixey’s Don’t Be Afraid of the Dark (review), the Guillermo del Toro-produced horror opening in theaters August 26 from FilmDistrict, Sally is surprised to find out her “teddy” won’t be providing her with much comfort.

The pic follows Sally, a young girl who moves to Rhode Island to live with her father (Guy Pearce) and his new girlfriend (Katie Holmes) in the 19th-century mansion they are restoring. Having stumbled upon the mansion’s hidden basement, Sally starts hearing voices calling out from the bolted ash pit, imploring her to open it. Sally obliges and unwittingly unleashes something so terrible, so unthinkable, that everyone’s life – hers most of all – is placed in immediate and grave danger.
