Don't Be Afraid of the Dark (2011) Movie Review

Movie tickets compliments of Yeeing via Iris

Synopsis :
A young girl sent to live with her father and his new girlfriend discovers creatures in her new home who want to claim her as one of their own.

Had high expectations of this movie in the beginning due to it's trailer but upon seeing the Miramax studio logo before the movie started, expectations were lowered. And my senses were right, it didn't live up to my expectations. Pity though, the movie had a great setup, an old spooky mansion with voices in the background, a basement with dodgy fireplace. But it just fails to deliver, the storyline didn't make much sense.The 'creatures' look vaguely like Zerglings and has the personality of (and talks like) Gollum

Near the end of the movie where the father finally believes that there are creatures living in the mansion, they decide to split up while packing up. After the event which her daughter was almost killed by said creatures. I'm suddenly reminded of Scooby Doo and the mystery gang. I suppose it's textbook horror cliche'.

Rating : 4/10

Wait for movie to be screened on your local cable/satellite channels.
