Don’t Be Afraid of the Dark was one of the films at this year’s Comic-Con that hit their panel in Hall H out of the park. We were shown the teaser trailer for the movie and now you can catch it online. As I said in my coverage of the panel, the teaser does a great job of creating atmosphere and evoking a very cool gothic style. Also, when was the last time you remember a horror movie actually being able to scare you with just its teaser?
Hit the jump to check out the teaser trailer and the official synopsis. Co-written and produced by Guillermo del Toro and directed by Troy Nixey, Don’t Be Afraid of the Dark opens on January 21, 2011.
