Director Guillermo Del Toro dropped by the San Diego Comic-Con this past weekend to show off his new producing gig- a remake of the 1973 horror classic Don't Be Afraid of the Dark! The remake is directed by Troy Nixey and stars Guy Pearce, Katie Holmes, and Bailee Madison.
Don't Be Afraid of the Dark centers around a young girl (Madison), sent to live with her father and his new girlfriend, who discovers sinister creatures that live underneath the stairs. She is fascinated by them -- until they prove dangerous. Pearce will play the father, an author frustrated by his daughter's tales of monsters, not believing her even when his girlfriend (Holmes) backs her.
Apparently, footage screened this past weekend scared the crap out of audiences, and reports are that the film will be an R-rated horror experience. Check out the Comic-Con poster for the January 21st release below!
