Don't Be Afraid of the Dark Blu-Ray Review



Synopsis: Sally, a young girl, moves to Rhode Island to live with her father and his new girlfriend in the 19th-century mansion they are restoring. While exploring the house, Sally starts to hear voices coming from creatures in the basement whose hidden agenda is to claim her as one of their own.

Review: This re-make of an older campier made for TV movie is a huge leap from the original.   The influence of Guillermo Del Toro is obvious in this thriller both in tone and tale.  The story of a displaced family moving into a cursed home is moody, dark and chilling.  Katie Holmes actually stands out with a fantastic performance, which isn't typical for her!  It was quite impressive.  The creeply impish creatures trapped in the fireplace are back to mischief and this one is sure to give chills!

The special features include: Conceptual Art Gallery, The Story, Blackwood's Mansion and The Creatures.

Interest Range: Horror, Suspense
