Sideshow's Don't Be Afraid of the Dark Diorama Now Available for Pre-Order





While the Don't Be Afraid of the Dark remake was disappointing to most of us, no one can deny that the creatures themselves were pretty cool, which is why we're letting you know that Sideshow Collectibles' badass Don't Be Afraid of the Dark polystone diorama just became available for pre-order.

Product Description:
Sideshow Collectibles is proud to present the Don't Be Afraid of the Dark diorama. Inspired by the gripping Guillermo Del Toro film, the mysterious and vicious inhabitants of Blackwood Manor are captured in 1:1 scale. Creeping out from the darkness, the creatures measure 6.5 and 7.25 inches tall, respectively, and are hand crafted with Sideshow's trademark attention to detail. The Don't Be Afraid of the Dark diorama makes a chilling and noteworthy addition to any collection.

The Don't Be Afraid of the Dark Polystone Diorama features:

  • Alphabet Blocks with initials GDT (Guillermo Del Toro) and DBA (Don't Be Afraid)
  • Back Story:
    Peering at victims from the darkness and a past that predates humanity, the homunculus creatures dwell in our nightmares made real. They surface with stealth, to catch even a glimpse is unusual, and far more rare are open interactions, except with the isolated or the weak.

    Alex, an over-busy father, brings his girlfriend Kim and daughter Sally to Blackwood Manor in Rhode Island to begin restoration of the estate. Eight-year-old Sally finds herself with plenty of time to explore the mansion and discover its secrets, including a hidden basement and sealed fireplace she can't resist opening. Inside she finds a curious item: a discarded adult tooth.

    Drawn to children, the creatures offer few clues to their origin or motives, but they violently prevent the fireplace from being sealed again. Offering insight into their disturbing intentions, they leave a coin under Sally's pillow in exchange for the lost tooth. Rooted in the darkness of the area's underground caves and in the realm of faerie, the creatures become more aggressive in their attempts to abduct Sally, as they likely have uncounted other children. After the creatures brutally attack one of Blackwood's workmen, Mr. Harris, Kim investigates the mysterious history of the estate and its former lord. The terrified family discovers the true intent of these creatures: to abduct Sally and transform her into one of their own.

    That movie was way overrated. That might have been scary if I were like 7 years old.

    Overrated? I don't think so. It may very well be only scary to a 7 year old, but not many people are saying it isn't. Most people actually agree. This article even starts out calling it disappointing, and rotten tomatoes has it at a 59%. I thought it had good moments, broken up by illogical and monotonous ones. Not amazing, yeah. Overrated, no. Pretty much everyone was underwhelmed.
