Watch Full DON'T BE AFRAID OF THE DARK/DRIVER SDCC2011 panel
Here ya go Adgy...
Saw a midnight showing of DBAOTD show last night. It definitely has del Toro's fingerprints all over it (which is def. a good thing, to me, anyway), and seems to explore a few of the themes common to his other movies. I liked it a lot but I have a couple of issues with it too, that I'll express if and when we (hopefully) have a spoiler-filled discussion once more people have seen it.
A lot of horror movies are pretty deep and have an emotional aspect, and GDT's horror is a really good example of that.
Say it ain't so! Say it ain't so!
I haven't seen it so I can't agree or disagree, but as a whole, it seems to be getting mixed reviews.

Wow, that's disappointing to hear.
Short Film of the Day: Latchkey’s Lament | Film School Rejects
The short film that got him the DBAOTD gig. He may have talent but the movie was a series of horrible plot holes, suspect 'rules', and overplayed creatures(that really shouldn't be that scary if you are over 6 inches tall and have access to a steady light source). Also haven't we already been through the 'fairies who feed on human teeth' GDT chestnut. I HATE this movie. It's that bad.
Don’t Be Afraid of the Dark: Movie Review
I wanted to love this film, there are some many great parts to it but unfortunately it doesn’t add up to the whole that I hoped for. That being said, there are some quality elements to it that if you’re not a crazy cinefile like me, you probably won’t notice them and have a fine time. I have a low threshold for horror but found that I could easily make it through this film. Yes the opening and moments of the film are tense, but for the most part this is a very easy to watch film to watch or bring a date to.
