That ending would have been enough to send little ones to bed with nightmares for weeks! Full Review

Rating: 5/10 -- If you were a child and saw it for the first time on television some four decades ago, it might have seemed pretty scary. Full Review

Rating: 3/4 -- The husband's hostility seems to encourage disaster, and the depiction of the couple's relationship offers something of a preview of what Stanley Kubrick would do with Jack Nicholson and Shelley Duvall in the early part of 'The Shining.' Full Review

Rating: 6/10 -- Certainly inspirational and occasionally haunting, with great effects, Don't Be Afraid of the Dark is also a bit overlong and padded. Full Review

Sticks to the familiar but he does it in such a way that it's still extremely creepy, a little bit campy and, at times, quite a lot of fun. Full Review

Description by

An old house... a mysterious locked room... a terrifying secret. Elements that make a horror movie memorably chilling get a taut, spooky reworking in Don't Be Afraid of the Dark. Kim Darby and Jim Hutton star as Sally and Alex, young marrieds who inherit a crumbling mansion. Despite warnings to leave well enough alone in her new home, Sally unlocks the mysterious room, opens a bricked-up fireplace - and unleashes a horde of hideous, whispering, murdering mini-demons only she can see and hear. Alex thinks she's imagining things. We know she isn't. And we know Sally should be very, very afraid of the dark!

Product Description:

A young couple inherit a house possessed by evil little creatures. Made for television.

Found Memories Movie Lover: from LISLE, NY US -- February, 14, 2011

This movie is one that I have not seen in ages! I was actually trying to remember the title, when looking through, I actually found it. The order came sooner than expected, and was of great quality. Can not wait to see it again.
