2010: December 20: DON'T BE AFRAID OF THE DARK delayed, theme demo added to audio section
Guillermo Del Toro-produced remake of 1973 televion horror movie, DON'T BE AFRAID OF THE DARK, was originally set for release January 21, 2011. The R-rated movie was now delayed by Miramax and there is no official release date set for the United States at this moment. The movie should still open in various territories such as Australia and Iceland (at least the release dates at IMDB hasn't been changed yet for these countries). Del Toro commented on the news: "It's been 13 years trying to make this movie, and we finally make it," he said of the movie about an estate whose basement is inhabited by devilish creatures. "It's quite shocking. I am trying to see the silver lining in this." One person close to the matter said that Disney didn't want to spend marketing money to release a picture that it wouldn't own. It originally was going to put out the movies on behalf of the new Miramax owners in exchange for a percentage of revenue. Instead, the person said, Filmyard will find a different distribution partner to put out "Don't Be Afraid of the Dark" after the acquisition closes -- probably sometime later next year.

2010: August 02: Guestbook now available
New section added today. Feel free to post any comments related to the subject of this website or its content.

2010: August 01: FLIGHT OF THE PHOENIX expanded score finally available
In October 2004 Marco Beltrami recorded approx 107 minutes of original score for his first collaboration with director John Moore. The whole score was unfortunately slightly re-edited in the postproduction, used in different places than originally intended and also mixed so low that what was left in the movie, was almost unrecognizable in the final mix. Regular release of the score on Varese Sarabande records offered great 40-minute selection from one of the best Marco Beltrami's scores in stunning sound quality but it not only didn't include some major sequences from the movie but also omitted choir from the final piece of the score: Homeward. Also finale of the movie - Nomad Suprises - is finaly presented here in complete film version (3:28 compated to 3:04 on Varese album). 
The bootleg that leaked recently is still very far from complete presentation of the whole score but with more than 20 minutes of additional material it offers welcomed addition to Marco Beltrami's discography... Tracklist coming soon and in the meantime you can already enjoy 3 brand new unreleased cues available in the aucio section.

2010: July 27: DON'T BE AFRAID OF THE DARK at ComicCon
Producer/Writer Guillermo del Toro and director Troy Nixey visited annual ComicCon in San Diego and discussed their upcoming remake of 70s TV horror DON'T BE AFRAID OF THE DARK. According to Del Toro, who co-wrote the movie with Matthew Robbins: " By agreement, we shot a movie with no sex, no gore or profanity, because we thought it was the way to avoid R. The MPAA came back and said, it didn't matter, that it would be rated R anyway, for 'pervasive scariness', which in a way is fantastic to hear. " The film will be released on Junuary 21st, 2010. No trailer has been released so far but you can at least watch interview with the director Troy Nixey:

2010: June 19: JONAH HEX released in theatres, score album details
