'Don't Be Afraid Of The Dark' Director Troy Nixey's First Film 'Latchkey's Lament' [watch] & Happy Birthday to Guillermo del Toro !

A few months ago we posted an update on Don't Be Afraid of the Dark, a new film written and produced by Guillermo del Toro, a remake of the 1973 Australian film of the same name. Don't Be Afraid Of The Dark is a fantasy-horror film in the vein of Pan's Labyrinth. First-time filmmaker Troy Nixey, landed the directing role by impressing del Toro with a short film he made called Latchkey's Lament.

Don't be Afraid of the Dark stars Katie Holmes and is currently in post-production with a theatrical release date scheduled for 2011.

The original Don't Be Afraid Of The Dark is now available on demand via Warner Archives. Watch the trailer from the original film after the jump.
