Remake of the 1973 film of the same name follows a young girl as she learns of the existence of terrifying creatures intent on capturing her inside her new home.

ABSTRACT
Remake of Don't Be Afraid of the Dark (1973). Eight-year old Sally Hurst, a young girl emotionally stunted from an Adderall addiction courtesy of her mother, is invited to live with father Alex and girlfriend Kim in a large house in Providence County, Rhode Island. The manor, unbeknownst to its present-day occupants, plays host to a cast of mysterious creatures subsisting off of the teeth of children, a fact that becomes readily evident when their strange calls for Sally force her family into a frightening situation where they must work to prevent the young girl from being assimilated into their army.
