Feeling isolated and alone, Sally decides to explore her sinister new surroundings with terrifying consequences. Having discovered a hidden basement she unwittingly unleashes an ancient and unholy presence… There’s something alive in the darkness and it knows her name. Something truly evil and it needs feeding.

The father, Alex has plans to spruce up the home with the help of his interior decorator girlfriend, Kim.
The previous owner of the home was a famous painter who mysteriously disappeared.
Alex's daughter, Sally, soon discovers the cause of the painter's disappearance.....
This is one of those films that has a famous Autuers name on some producing credit to give the movie that little bit more gravitas.
Del Toro stated that he wanted to make this as it was his favourite TV mini series of the seventies. And good grief is the film bad.
Like the re-make of 'The Haunting' the house is beautiful and so are the sets, but you come to see a horror movie to be scared, or be put under a little tension, not to see anorexic gremlins bully a little girl.
Pearce and Holmes have zero chemistry and the only reason this hasn't got one star is because, to my knowledge the first time that Mike and Jim Robinson from hit Aussie soap 'Neighbours' have been in the same room on the big screen.
otherwise, it's dull, don't let the Del Toro credit fool you.
While this film is jumpy in places and offers some decent gruesome, shocking moments it never goes all out scary and makes you want to leave the lights on. But possibly this was a wise move, rather than giving us the cliched slasher, killer, blood all over the place horror we get an hour and a half of tension, well crafted chills and jumps that ultimately go on to make this one of the best creature horrors i have ever seen.Read more ›
I enjoyed the animated aspect of the credits. It gave the movie that classic 1960's feel. Afterwards we have Guy Pearce moving into the same home with his young melancholy daughter, Sally, who would prefer to be with her mom in LA. She also has an instant dislike of Katie Holmes, dad's girlfriend. Eventually the family discovers the basement, which had been sealed. The area is famous for its sink holes that go deep into the earth. Sally is fascinated with shaft/tunnel in the basement.
The movie initially keeps you in suspense as to what is in the basement and which travels through the old ventilation system. Good suspense. Good creepy story. Good child acting. Great movie to show when the girls want to have a sleep over. And then when things are good and tense, flip the breaker off and let everything go dark.
No f-bombs, sex, or nudity. Try not to think too deep and enjoy this one.
...don't let the ancient and unholy presence beckon you into the hidden basement, because you can never leave...
if you don't like scary things happening to little children then don't watch this, don't watch Guillermo del Torro full stop as most of his movies are in this tyle
