John Newland directed the TV movie back in 1973 from a script written by Nigel McKeand. Kim Darby and Jim Hutton starred and the film centered on:
An old house … a mysterious locked room … a terrifying secret. Elements that make a horror movie memorably chilling get a taut, spooky reworking in Don’t Be Afraid of the Dark. Kim Darby ( True Grit) and Jim Hutton (The Green Berets) star as Sally and Alex, young marrieds who inherit a crumbling mansion. Despite warnings to leave well enough alone in her new home, Sally unlocks the mysterious room, opens a bricked-up fireplace … and unleashes a horde of hideous whispering, murdering minidemons only she can see and hear.
