The Behind the Scenes Pic of the Day has all the time in the world. In the world. In the world. To set us free! In the world!

Ahoy, squirts! Quint here with today’s Behind the Scenes Pic!

You know, I didn't grow up with DON'T BE AFRAID OF THE DARK, the TV movie that caused a whole generation of monster lovers serious mental trauma, so I don't have much nostalgia for it. I watched it in preparation for the Guillermo del Toro-produced remake and found a lot of it fun, but man oh man did Kim Darby's acting grate on me in that movie.

I can see how that dark-dark-dark ending can mess with a young mind, though, especially in a typically safe TV movie zone. So, in respect to the impact this little piece of dark weirdness has had on the genre I love, I present to you a photo of some of the demons going over their lines...

Thanks to Dimitar Dimitrov and the Practical Effects Group for the image. Enjoy!

Why not some more (groovy) demons for tomorrow’s behind the scenes pic?
