Everyone is making a big stink about the Guillermo del Toro
-produced remake of the 1973 made-for-TV movie Don't Be Afraid of the Dark
- and rightfully so, the first trailer looks intense
and the reactions to it out of SDCC were over the moon - but it's not the only film the Hellboy
master has in his production pipeline. He's also grandfathering Julia's Eyes
he new film from The Orphanage director Guillem Morales. [Update: I completely blanked when writing this post and did not double check my own memory. Juan Antonio Bayona directed The Orphanage, NOT Guillem Morales. Apologies and thanks to Luke Mullen for correcting me.] If you've seen that freaky haunted house flick than you'll surely know why Morales' next film is something to get excited for. If you haven't, then hopefully.
The below trailer (via Auilldos
) whets your appetite. It doesn't have any English subtitles accompanying it, however, so if you'd like to understand the context know that it's about a woman (The Orphanage's
Belen Rueda) who is progressively losing her own vision as she investigates the suspicious death of her blind twin sister.
I'm not sure what's going on beyond that, though, so if you speak Spanish feel free to give us the gist of what's said in the trailer below. But as of right now I'm perfectly happy not knowing why Julia is losing her sight or who the man is who keeps standing over her shoulder. It's just creepier that way.
