The plot follows a young girl, played by Bailee Madison, who hears voices coming from the hidden cellar of her Rhode Island home, which she recently moved into with her parents, played by Guy Pearce and Holmes. MIKE LANG, CEO of Miramax said in a statement, "We're very pleased to partner with FilmDistrict to bring Don't Be Afraid of the Dark to U.S. audiences. GUILLERMO DEL TORO has crafted a true thriller that exemplifies the type of high-quality films for which Miramax is known. We are thrilled to add it to our growing library and we look forward to maximizing its U.S. theatrical and long-term potential."
