'Don't Be Afraid of the Dark' teaser trailer: Hands off Katie Holmes' BMW, and that child!

Posted on

After the break, watch the teaser trailer for Don’t Be Afraid of the Dark, Guillermo del Toro’s remake of the 1973 made-for-TV original. Katie Holmes plays a variation of Kim Darby’s character, a neurotic homemaker intent on decorating a spooky Victorian house. Instead of “a housewife,” Katie is “the girlfriend.” And hey! It’s Guy Pearce! Definitely watch this at your desk while staring blankly at a black screen for the first 30 or so seconds because it’s important to thoroughly creep your coworkers out.

I like the detail of the little girl (Bailee Madison)’s feet disappearing underneath the sheets. I kept wondering if she would get sucked into the wall and have to deal with crazy-eyed Katie Holmes-as-Teri Hatcher-as-doll on the other side. We’ll have to wait ’til January to find out for sure.

Is anyone freaked out? [Trailer Addict]
