Creatures Play MacGyver in Yet Another ‘Afraid of the Dark’ Clip

FilmDistrict continues to unload clip after clip from Troy Nixey’s Don’t Be Afraid of the Dark (review) that’s sure to combine into the entire film by the time it hits theaters on August 26.

The latest piece of footage from the Guillermo del Toro-produced horror traps Sally in the bathtub when the creatures play MacGyver with a light switch. Don’t tell Sally, but all she has to do is turn the light back ON to scare away the little creatons.

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.
