From the fantastic mind of Guillermo Del Toro comes Don't Be Afraid of the Dark, a creepy, spine-tingling story, set modern day but playing up fears from gothic childhood fairy tales - that demons, evil fairies, gnomes and ghouls lurk just outside our range of vision, and we'd better watch out.
Sally Hurst, a lonely, withdrawn child moves in with her father (Guy Pearce) and his new girlfriend (Katie Holmes) as they restore the Gothic estate, the sprawling Blackwood Manor. Sally discovers a hidden basement, undisturbed since the strange disappearance of the mansion's owner a century ago. Voices draw Sally in and she unwittingly opens a gateway into a hellish underworld from which an army of ancient, dark-dwelling creatures emerge - small in size but endless in number.
As they conspire to drag her down into the macabre mansion's bottomless depths, Sally tries to warn everyone it's not make-believe - before the evil lurking in the dark consumes them all.
