The Guillermo del Toro-produced remake of Don't Be Afraid of the Dark will be released to Blu-ray and DVD on January 3rd, 2012. The film is directed by Troy Nixey, written and produced by Guillermo del Toro, and stars Katie Holmes, Guy Pearce, and Bailee Madison.

The Blu-ray edition has a 5.1 DTS-HD Master Audio track and three behind-the-scenes featurettes, which include a look at the story, Blackwood's mansion, and the creatures from the film. The list of bonus features are subject to change, but it looks like this release won't contain extensive bonus features or audio commentary. We'll be sure to provide another update when the official cover art and final list of bonus features is released.

“Sally Hurst (Bailee Madison), a lonely, withdrawn child, has just arrived in Rhode Island to live with her father Alex (Guy Pearce) and his new girlfriend Kim (Katie Holmes) at the 19th-century mansion they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 house’s bottomless depths, she must convince Alex and Kim that it’s not a fantasy—before the evil lurking in the dark consumes them all.”
