Not to be confused with that freaky Nickelodeon show, Don't Be Afraid of the Dark is a Guillermo del Toro-penned-and-produced remake of a 1973 TV movie about wee, skittering monsters who harass an old mansion's new tenants.

This flick is directed by Troy Nixey, and Guy Pearce and Katie Holmes star. Don't Be Afraid of the Dark hits theaters August 26, 2011.
