With the Guillermo del Toro produced remake now in theaters, Bloody Disgusting’s Ryan Daley took a look at Warner Bros. Home Entertainment’s re-release of the 1973 telemovie Don’t Be Afraid of the Dark. How does it measure up?
“1973’s ‘Don’t Be Afraid of the Dark’ is another member of this highly-revered class of TV-movie graduates. Considered solid enough to be the basis for this year’s Guillermo Del Toro-produced remake, its whimsical quaintness still provokes feelings of potent nostalgia, especially among Gen-Xers. Unfortunately, time has not been particularly kind to this entry in the canon.”
