Don’t Be Afraid of the Dark

BluRay Authority

  • Excerpt: There’s an old saying that “less is more.” And when you think about it, it really works when referring to movies. This is what made “Jaws” work so well in that we never really saw the shark, namely we just felt its presence.

Don’t Be Afraid of the Dark (Blu-ray Review)

  • Conclusion: What can I say? It’s all in the marketing and they dropped the ball with that. Don’t Be Afraid of the Dark is not “scary” per se, but is creepy as all hell.

Don't Be Afraid of the Dark

High-Def Digest

  • Summary: 'Don't Be Afraid of the Dark' doesn't quite succeed on all levels (for me), but there are a number of clever scares, the cinematography is slick, the score is gothic and ominous, and the production and creature design are memorable.

Don't Be Afraid Of The Dark

Cinema Blend
26 August 2011
  • Excerpt: Don’t Be Afraid Of The Dark is very good with details. Its setting--an old, partially renovated mansion--is perfectly constructed for a horror film. Its cast is very small and tight knit, lacking the usual hot, frivolous and unimportant supporting players.

Don’t Be Afraid Of The Dark

AV Club
25 August 2011
  • Excerpt: A polish on a fondly remembered 1973 TV movie, Don’t Be Afraid Of The Dark has been promoted as “ Guillermo Del Toro ’s Don’t Be Afraid Of The Dark ,” which by the evidence here is both unmistakable and deceptive.

Empire Online
18 May 2012
  • Conclusion: A satisfying, well-crafted supernatural horror movie, refreshingly retro in its Gothic trappings. It won’t traumatise a generation, but it certainly delivers the shivers.

Don't Be Afraid of the Dark

Gamereactor
14 May 2012
  • Conclusion: Das Remake des Originals aus den Siebzigern macht vieles richtig, denn statt nur zu kopieren, gibt es ein paar neue Ideen - so ist etwa die Hauptfigur im Film von Guillermo del Toro keine erwachsene Frau, sondern ein kleines Mädchen.

  • Excerpt: Jag var så sugen på att se en skräckfilm, att jag sneglade på vad andra kritiker säger om aktuella filmer. Generellt sett är de flesta skräckfilmerna helt enkelt ämnade för en mycket smal fanskara eller så är de dåliga och därmed basta! Och så några som bara är lysande!

Film: Don't Be Afraid of the Dark

16 December 2011
  • Excerpt: Synopsis: Don’t Be Afraid of the Dark är en gastkramande mardröm signerad av skräckmästaren Guillermo del Toro som här skapar än värld långt mer skrämmande än de han levererat i Pans labyrint och Barnhemmet. Blackwood Manor ligger omgiven av fantasieggande trädgårdar och prunkande grönska.
