The first trailer for the Guillermo del Toro produced remake Don’t be Afraid of the Dark starring Katie Holmes, Guy Pearce and Baillee Madison has just debuted online.

The film centers on a family living in a 19th-century mansion, which they are renovating, when young Sally (Bailee Madison) 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 Alex (Pearce) and Kim (Holmes) that it’s not a fantasy-before the evil lurking in the dark consumes them all.

Feature film newcomer Troy Nixey is directing for Miramax Films, which will release the picture on January 21, 2011. For a look at the poster and a larger look at the picture above click here.
