  • Summary: Not my favorite film of 2011, nor one of my favorite horror films, but this is well done nonetheless. Pearce, Holmes, and young Madison carry the film nicely. Great musical score. The concept isn't that great or even remotely scary, but the film is well done.

  • Summary: More of a nightmarish fairy tale for your kids to sleep in your bed at night. Dark tale of creatures tearing a family apart. Wonderful acting, great setting, and all around brilliant movie.

  • Summary: Despite the presence of Guillermo del Toro, this is a weak stab at horror - neither the characters, story nor creatures provide much to get excited about and in the end, this is just another in the long line of forgettable horror films I've seen.

  • Summary: This was the perfect movie to rent for Friday the 13th. The creatures were a let down, i was waiting for them to be quite a bit more scary, but i will admit that there were a few places that made my skin crawl. 'Alex' needed to be a stronger character in my view, he just seem to stay in the background way too much. It being he daughter he should have played a bigger role and 'Kim' should have been more in the background. Makes me want to see the original and compare.

Weak Remake

MovieMike, FilmCrave
22 December 2011
  • Excerpt: ‘Don’t Be Afraid Of The Dark’ [DBAD] is thriller remake from sophomore director, Troy Nixey. Also attached to this project as one of the principal writers is Guillermo del Toro (‘Hellboy’, ‘Pan’s Labyrinth’), who is as famous for projects he turned down (‘Chronicles of Narnia’, ‘I Am Legend’) as the ones he has participated in.

  • Summary: It's a well made movie that fails to deliver. At no point did I feel any tension, or suspense. I couldn't suspend enough disbelief, for the characters and situations, because they were tedious. I also disliked the creatures. It does have it's few moments, but it ultimately left me bored and frustrated.

Scary Tooth Fairy

  • Summary: Scary but not bloody. Good suspense despite a predictable storyline. The cast and the camera work are doing a good job. The monsters are well made and scary enough.

"..CREEPY AND FANTASTIC.."

  • Conclusion: This movie is actually quite brilliant and rather a breath of fresh air compared to your average so called scary movies these days, a brilliant story about a family who move into a new home unaware of the fact little demon like fairies live in the cellar and they like to eat children, the effects are fantastic on the little monsters and rather creepy.

creepy little critters!

  • Conclusion: Agree with previous reviewer. It was an different take on the horror genre. Main characters were full and rounded with the little girl 'Sally' performing most admirably. Fantastic creepy house setting (the location manager did well!). Then there's the main characters, the evil little 'Fairies'. They blended so well into the film and really bought it alive. Not the most terrifying of movies, but a great view anyway. Really enjoyed.

'MAYBE NOT DIFFERENT ENOUGH'

  • Conclusion: the tale, a couple are doing up an old house which unbeknown to them has a dark history. when eight year old 'sally' is flown in from 'L.A' to join her father, the problems are about to be released by her inquisitive investigations into her new surroundings. small, evil, hunchbacked goblins want one thing----'sally' maybe the suspense that might have emerged in the film is shown far too soon ?
