Don't Be Afraid of the Dark (2011)
Remake Of 1973 Horor Film Of The Same Name
Don`t Be Afraid of the Dark movie synopsis: A young girl, Sally (Bailee Madison), moves in with her father (Guy Pearce) and his girlfriend (Katie Holmes); her dad is renovating an old house he hopes to sell. Sally is very sad and feels lonely because she was abandoned by her mother. Although her father's girlfriend, Kim, tries to warm up to her, Sally ignores her. Later Sally finds a hidden basement with a sealed fireplace. Sally finds herself drawn to it as she can hear voices that beg her to open it so they can be her friends. Her dad stops her before she can get the door completely open, but rat like creatures get the door open and start to torment Sally.
Sally gets blamed for most things like cutting up Kim's dress and destroying a teddy bear that Kim gave to her. Sally insists it was not her but her dad doesn't believe her and is more concerned about finishing the house. Kim, however, does believe her and they start to grow closer. Kim does research on the house and discovered it was once owned by a man whose son went missing and the man disappeared too. She also learned that he believed in evil creatures that dated back to the Stone Age that were known to kidnap people (usually children) to replace their numbers by turning them into one of them. Kim is also shocked to see that many of his drawings matched what Sally has drawn. Realizing Sally is in danger, Kim tries to get Sally out of the house to a hotel, despite Alex's objections. Before they leave, the power goes out as it was cut by one of the little creatures.
