Don't Be Afraid of the Dark

Fear is never just Make Believe
  • Don't let them drive you mad....

A lonely and withdrawn little girl has just arrived to live with her father and his new girlfriend in the 19th-century mansion they are restoring. While exploring the sprawling estate, the young girl discovers a hidden basement, undisturbed since the strange disappearance of the mansion's builder a century ago. When she unwittingly lets loose a race of ancient, dark-dwelling creatures who conspire to drag her down into the mysterious house's bottomless depths, she must convince the adults that it's not a fantasy... before the evil lurking in the dark consumes them all.
