Don’t Be Afraid of the Dark

(R) ★★☆☆☆

Remaking this 1973 made-for-TV movie may have been a miscalculation by producer/co-writer Guillermo del Toro. Guy Pearce and Katie Holmes play a couple renovating a spooky mansion with nasty little neighbors in the basement. Bailee Madison plays Pearce’s daughter, a girl who hears the whispered invitations of the monsters when no one else can. This effort is fairly good at best.
