Don't Be Afraid of the Dark (1973)
97 min.
Directed by John Newland.
With Kim Darby, Jim Hutton, Barbara Anderson, William Demerest, Pedro Armenariz, Jr., William Sylvester, Don Mallon, Celia Kaye.
Excellent and much lauded TV horror film.

Alex and Sally Farnham (Hutton, Darby) are a young married couple who move into a house they inherit. But it turns out the beautiful old mansion is inhabited by a group of mutant dwarfs!

And the creatures won't stop with merely terrifying the helpless wife (wonderfully played by Kim Darby).

No, they want to bring poor Sally into their abyss...for all eternity!

Genuinely creepy and unsettling, this one is hard to forget - a true TV cult fave - and has an ending that will stay with you for a long time.

Watch it alone, with the lights out one evening.

And remember...when someone warns you not to unseal a bricked up fireplace, heed their warning! There might very well be a good reason...
