Don't Be Afraid of the Dark

‘Don’t Be Afraid of the Dark’ reminds one of the superior scary movie.


Horror

Rod Lott

In general, I prefer the films of Guillermo del Toro that he doesn’t direct (“The Orphanage,” “Splice”) to the ones he does (particularly “Hellboy” and its sequel). That pretty much holds true for “Don’t Be Afraid of the Dark,” which he only co-wrote and co-produced, ceding the director’s chair to newcomer Troy Nixey.
