Warner Archive will be releasing the TV-movie classic, Don’t Be Afraid of the Dark (1973) on a 4K restoration Blu-ray. Stars Kim Darby and Jim Hutton.
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 ( True Grit) and Jim Hutton (The Green Berets) 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 minidemons only she can see and hear.
This is the original TV movie that inspired the 2010 theatrical remake starring Katie Holmes and Guy Pearce.
