So yet another Del Toro style horror. This one i thought had a lot of similarities with Pan's Labyrinth and The Orphanage. The same style and form, where creepy and weird is being used to scare, over intense blood and gore.
I havent seen the original, so i dont know if that one had the same unnatural and sort of fairytale feel to it, but the passion for the genre shows in every frame.
The star of this film is definitely Bailee Madison as Sally. Very impressive work for an actress in her age range. In general i think every actor is so well chosen for their characters. I wouldnt want to see it any different.
The only bad thing i have to say about Don't Be Afraid Of The Dark, is that i wish they would have spent more time filling some of the plot holes. Theres not many, but i felt a little unsatisfied at the end.
