I know there's a trend lately for my topics here, but I can't help the fact that Del Toro is just getting involved with pure awesomeness lately.

And THIS is a little gem I found by accident and glad I fell upon. Woe unto those who have to see this bit of nightmarish horror in the cinema:


Synopsis: Sally Hurst (Bailee Madison), a lonely, withdrawn child, has just arrived in Rhode Island to live with her father Alex (Guy Pearce) and his new girlfriend Kim (Katie Holmes) at the 19th-century mansion they are restoring. While exploring the sprawling estate, the young girl discovers a hidden basement, undisturbed since the strange disappearance of the mansion's builder a century ago. When Sally unwittingly lets loose a race of ancient, dark-dwelling creatures who conspire to drag her down into the mysterious houseís bottomless depths, she must convince Alex and Kim that itís not a fantasyóbefore the evil lurking in the dark consumes them all.

Now I hate Katie Holmes as an actress with a fiery and unresonable passion, and not even she looks like a stain on this production. Plus, a film made of children's nightmares with a hard rating? HELL YEAH!!! Del Toro is quoted from comic con saying: "Horror has to have some balls...sweaty and wrinkled."

The bed scene reminds of New Nightmare.
