One would think that Guillermo del Toro would be crazy busy with moving to New Zealand and gearing up for The Hobbit, but he has enough time to also be afraid of the dark. Yahoo/Reuters reports the director is teaming up with Miramax to produce a remake of the 1973 television movie Don't Be Afraid of the Dark -- which tells the story of a young girl who goes to live with her dad and his new girlfriend, and finds creepy creatures under the stairs (and table). You can check out a clip above -- there's something darned creepy about a napkin getting pulled off your lap, into the dark, under-table depths.

Troy Nixey, a comic book artist and writer, will get his feature directorial debut with the film, which del Toro is currently adapting with Matthew Robbins (who worked with him on Mimic). New monsters will be created for the film, which should be pretty wild with del Toro's involvement, but development on that aspect hasn't begun yet.
