Once you believe... you're dead!
Twelve year old Ryan Billings has been diagnosed with an acute fear of the dark. He spends each night lying awake in torment, waiting and watching as the evil in the darkness grows stronger, feeding off his fear. His older brother Dale, suspects that there is nothing wrong with Ryan and that this is just a ploy for more attention. Regardless, he promises to watch over his little brother as their parents head off to a party for the night. Outside a storm rages and when the power goes out, darkness envelops the house. Ryan knows that tonight the evil has finally come to claim him. Dale desperately tries everything to try and calm him down, until the horrors in the dark make him realize Ryan had good reason to be so afraid!

Honestly, with that nightmare inducing fanart I thought I was going to be in for some ride with this. Amusingly, the fanart is of the wrong movie, and this is almost like a family movie. But that's great anyway because this movie was actually pretty nice.

I say "nice" instead of "good" because I think that signifies this movie better. It has that late 90s feel to it, and is very charmy (which is the movie's strongest point), although slightly cheesy at times. I will say that it was quite creepy at times as well, but I think that heavily depends on what mood you're in. A kind of feelgood horror movie I guess, and in that it succeeds very well.
