Film #12: Don't Be Afraid of the Dark

Tuesday, August 30, 2011Zena Horror


Sunday I saw this movie and sadly, I was disappointed.



Anyhow, it was released August 26, 2011 and was directed by Troy Nixey, and written by Matthew Robbins & Mr. Guillermo del Toro himself. G. del Toro pushed for this movie to be rated R and after seeing the movie, I still don't know how it was that! The movie starred Bailee Madison, Katie Holmes, Guy Pearce and last but not least Jack Thompson




I'm not saying it was a bad movie, just wasn't good & it sucks because it had OOBER potential to be something grand & fantastical. You can check it out if you please...you may dig it! If you liked it, disliked it or felt bleeehh about it, let me know!

  5. I am officially bummed that you didn't like it.

    Also, Guillermo Del Toro has been quoted in saying that he and Nixey pushed for a PG13 rating in which to get younger viewers in the theaters to relate to the film more. The ratings board slapped an R on the film because of child terror as well as the opening scene of violence. There's a YouTube video of Del Toro expressing his displeasure of the film's current R rating. So, I can fully understand how viewers might walk into this film expecting all kinds of crazy R rated stuff...when, in actuality it's meant more for younger viewers and how it sucks when grown ups don't pay attention to their fears.

    I felt that there was so much cool stuff to like about the film. Altho, Pan's Labyrinth was immensely better.

  6. I watched the original version again fairly recently and I hate to say it but I was disappointed in that one too. I remembered it as being much better than it really was. Once the surprise of the little creatures is gone, it's too dated to ever watch again.

  9. @FilmDeviant I'm disappointed too. I thought it was filmed beautifully and the actors & actresses did a great job.

    I agree with you, there were sooo many cool stuff to like in the film but the story line didn't do it for me. I think what really took the cake was the ending. A huge disappointed. I had no idea that he wanted it be PG 13, I need to get MY facts straight.!

    @Dr Blood that is true. Too bad that didn't really keep the mysterious of the LOOK of the creatures.

    @Ghostwound I'm glad you liked it. No worries! Although I didn't like it, I'm not bashing it.

    @MaxEvel you may enjoy it!

    @Keith Lol. I honestly didn't think Katie Holmes was that bad! I know a lot of people thought she was bad.

    @Ty Its cool if you wait for the DVD. You may enjoy it.

    @Vanessa I don't think it's a bad horror movie, it just wasn't what I expected. But like you said, there are a lot of people complaining.
