Retro Trailer: "Don't Be Afraid of the Dark" (1973)

I just got back from seeing the remake of "Don't Be Afraid of the Dark" and I enjoyed myself quite a bit. Now, I don't have a great nostalgic love for the original; in fact, I have only seen bits and pieces of it over the past few years so I didn't go in to the theater with any great reservations over a remake. I am a sucker for the over the top gothic imagery and the dark fairytale atmosphere that can really only be created on these types of films. (The original and the 1987 movie "Dolls" also come to mind.) That being said, I'd say it's about time we take a look at the trailer for the original TV movie, 1973's "Don't Be Afraid of the Dark" from director John Newland:



I like horror movies. That is all.
