Overview

Guillermo Del Toro Don't Be Afraid of the Dark: Blackwood's Guide to Dangerous Fairies by Guillermo del Toro, Christopher Golden, Troy Nixey


An illustrated novel that dives into the world of the 2010 Miramax film "Don't be Afraid of the Dark." The movie is a PG-13 thriller written and produced by Guillermo del Toro, starring Guy Pearce and Katie Holmes, about a young girl sent to live with her father and his girlfriend. They move into a historic New England house, which is secretly inhabited by a brood of small creatures. These creatures seem at first to be playful figments of his daughter's imagination, but quickly turn into a deadly threat.

The book, co-written by Guillermo Del Toro and Christopher Golden, takes place a hundred years before the movie begins. It chronicles the travels and adventures of a young nature scientist who begins to understand there's more to the world than science understands.

The journal entries of blackwood had grown from curiosity to obsesssion and ends in madness as it had gotten creepy and dark, but the entries that were made on the myths of fairies of different countries were fasinating from scotland to japan and germany and so on and i believe a movie based on this book would be interesting to see the life of the man known as blacwood desend into his obsessive madness of the tooth breaker or tooth fairy

Absolutely stunning book, full of Del Toros sinister sense of fairy tales. In this book, we see a level of faerie and spirit belief that has been missing since Yeats.

I thought this book was a simple enjoyable read. It also is a nice prequel to the movie that came out. The book also has "good" yet creepy artwork.
