G del T makes me fear the Dark

It's been awhile since I've had a chance to Monster Bash Blog, but rest assured, SpOOoOOOOoOky things are in the works!

I have lots of frightening films, abhorrent activities, and evil events that need to be let's get to it!

Guillermo del Toro is no stranger to Monster Bash Blog - I love this guy.  He produced "The Orphanage" which was incredible, as you'll remember from my earlier post about it...and he wrote and directed "Pan's Labyrinth", which was also great.

So of course, when we went to see another movie and the trailer for "Don't Be Afraid of the Dark" came on, I was super pumped.

I mean really, who wouldn't be, look at this thing:

Now, I had no idea until after I saw the movie, but this movie is apparently a "remake" for the 1973 movie of the same name:

I use the term remake loosely because the two don't seem to be identical in the storyline, but close enough.

Honestly, let me cut to the chase.... just go see this movie.  Immediately.  Go right now after reading this, because this movie was G-R-E-A-T.

I was a little skeptical at first because the villains are like 6 inches tall, I don't like bratty kids being the star, and Katie Holmes is in this, but it scared the crap out of me, Katie Holmes was pretty decent in it, I had a love/hate for the little girl.

Guillermo del Toro wins again.
