Don't Be Afraid of the Dark Coming to DVD... Tomorrow!

Whoa Nelly! Did I hear that right? The ultra-obscure, much sought after little TV horror film is finally getting its chance at the audience it deserves and no one knew about it?!?

Well, never you mind, because the cat is out of the bag now. Looks like Warner Bros. Official Online Store is currently taking pre-orders for the DVD coming out tomorrow! Sheesh. Nice marketing campaign.

I suggest you all go out and pick up a copy and support those little demon creatures because life in a bricked up fireplace isn't all that grand.

It's wonderful to get an official release for this!

I remember talking to the director, John Newland about it when I was writing my One Step Beyond book, and he was surprised that Don't Be Afraid of the Dark had such an impact on our generation.

But it sure as hell did. Gave me nightmares. I have a bootleg copy and I never, ever watch it when I'm alone in the house.

Thanks for the heads up!

Oh, I can't wait to see this...I've heard about it for years!
Thanks for the tip...

Hey guys,

Thanks for the comments.

John, I will forever be jealous that you got to talk to the director. I think a lot of people who dabbled in TV Movies are quite surprised by their impact.

Billy... get your copy NOW! :)

I saw this on TV when I was a kid. I LOVE this flick! Good to know it's out there. Kim Darby and Jim Hutton!

Just discovered you site. I was born in '69 and grew up with all of these shows and TV Movies. Did you know they remade this one? It's supposed to come out January or February 2011. The orginal creeped me the hell out when I was a kid. Still haven't replaced my bootleg yet, either.
