The 10 Most Disappointing Movies of 2011

Director Troy Nixey's Don't Be Afraid of the Dark remake managed to leave an impression with its (creepy) teaser trailer. The news that Guillermo del Toro (Hellboy, Pan's Labyrinth) had co-written and produced the film only lent further credence to the idea that this could be a great addition to the haunted house/monster horror genre.

Nixey and del Toro ultimately failed to do anything interesting with Don't Be Afraid of the Dark; the remake also suffers from some shoddy filmmaking and poor acting. When a movie is marketed as being "presented by Guillermo del Toro," we've come to expect something memorable like The Orphanage or Splice - not a throwaway supernatural horror flick like this one.
