Hitting theaters Friday is the Guillermo Del Toro produced remake of Don’t Be Afraid Of The Dark, which I personally didn’t care much for but has been receiving strong word of mouth, and of all the millions of Del Toro projects announced in the past couple years, this is one of the few to actually make it all the way to theaters, so hurrah! Check below for our exclusive chats with Del Toro as well as stars Katie Holmes and Bailee Madison. The film opens nationwide on Friday, August 26th.
“The pic follows Sally (Bailee Madison), 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.“
