"Don't be Afraid of the Dark", a remake of a 1973 made-for-tv movie by the same name, is ultimately a film about childhood innocence, fairy tales-turned real life evil, and how ignorant adults are of things that go bump in the night… in other words, it's a Guillermo Del Toro movie. Except it isn't, because this one was directed by first timer Troy Nixey, under the tutelage of Del Toro, serving as producer. It centers around Sally, a young girl played by Bailee Madison, who's sent away by her mother in Los Angeles to live with her father in a big, creepy house in Rhode Island.
