"Don't Be Afraid Of The Dark" Reviews
"Don't Be Afraid Of The Dark" opened here in Argentina today and I was lucky enough to see it. I can't even begin to tell you how impressed I am by Bailee's performance. She absolutely owned the movie. The film is amazing and you are all going to love it! Of course, I'm not the only one who's been blown away by our girl's wonderful acting skills. I updated the movie's reviews page and let me tell you, cricits have nothing but amazing things to say about Bailee!
1. "Bailee Madison, undoubtedly Hollywood’s most promising young actress, yet again shows her dramatic range, and it’s impressive."Amy Zanlungo @ Denver Cinephile Examiner2. "The movie depends so much on the little girl, played by Bailee Madison with pluck, intelligence and a righteous temper. When children are endangered in horror movies, it's no fun if they just scream and run away. That's taking a cheap shot. Sally is brave and determined, and Madison is an effective young actress."Roger Ebert @ RogerEbert.Com3. "Not only is Madison quite adorable, but the character herself snags all of your sympathy from the moment she steps on screen. She’s a seemingly sad kid being bounced between her divorced parents; how can you not feel for her? Rubbing it in even further is Madison herself as at just 9-years-old during production, she’s as talented as they come. As she’s the center of this story, without a stellar Sally, this supernatural tale wouldn’t have been believable in the least. However, Nixey found a young actress capable of selling it big time, making the experience unnervingly authentic. The adult characters suffer the slightest bit as Madison steals the show.Perri Nemiroff @ ShockYa.Com4. "However, while the pair are touted as the film’s headliners, it’s 9-year-old actress Bailee Madison that offers the real standout performance among the film’s human cast members."Rick Marshall @ Yahoo News5. "Bailee Madison is the person to watch in this movie, meaning that whether you're scared or not-and if you're an adult who is familiar with these type of work you won't particularly be-you may be intrigued more by the interplay of the human folks than by the pitter-patter of the generic monsters."Harvey Karten @ MovieWeb16. "But this movie rests on Madison's small shoulders and she acquits herself amazingly well, giving a poised, believable performance as a little girl going from sullen to curious to terrified by what she encounters in that house. She and Holmes form a nice rapport, and I was amused to discover in the opening scenes that they were not playing mother and daughter, as they actually resemble one another and the trailers had me thinking what a good job they did finding a kid who we could buy as Holmes' daughter."Eric Goldman @ IGN7. "The young Bailee is asked to carry this tale and she is a marvel to watch."Joe Belcastro @ Examiner.Com8. "Madison does an impressive job carrying the film bringing a natural sympathy we need in a protagonist with a nice dose of obnoxiousness that makes her feel like a real kid."James Rocchi @ The Playlist
"Don't Be Afraid Of The Dark" opens tomorrow in the US. You should definitely go see it if you're old enough. You won't be sorry!
