Don't Be Afraid of the Dark DVD and Blu-ray release details


Troy Nixey's reboot of the TV movie Don't Be Afraid of the Dark will be hitting Blu-ray and DVD on January 3rd 2012 through Sony Pictures Home Entertainment. The movie, which stars Guy Pierce and Katie Holmes, is also produced by Guillermo Del Toro. I did enjoy this when I caught it at the theater, I thought it was a nice return to some old school style chills, rather than the in-your-face style blood and guts that we so often get. Both the Blu-ray and DVD come with three featurettes, with the Blu-ray featuring a conceptual art gallery.
