"produced by Guillermo del Toro"

So what. If producing is so important, why don't you keep repeating the name of producers for other movies like you do with Guillermo del Toro produced films.

Because del Toro is more than just a producer. He is a director and storyteller and a champion of cinema fantastique. He made Cronos for heaven's sake. He deserves mention.

Fully agree with agentorancge. Del Toro knows quality. I haven't seen him put his name on anything bad, so when you see his name as producer, chances are good I'm gonna enjoy the movie.

WTF does EVERY trailer I've seen lately reveal WAAAAAY more than they should?!?!

I saw the original made-for-TV movie when I was 6 and it scared the bejesus out of me. So, I knew what the story was about before watching the trailer for the remake.

But having just watched the trailer, I'm reasonably certain that anyone who watches it will pretty much figure out the entire movie.

They should never have revealed that much in the trailer. Viewers would have been freaked the hell out to discover what's really after the little girl while crunching on popcorn in a dark cinema, because that's where you reveal the mystery, NOT in trailer?

I've pretty much given up on watching trailers, because these marketing idiots want to give away as much as they can in a 2 minute trailer.

Dear studios: Learn from JJ Abrams and tease the hell out of me with the trailer! I WANT to be left wanting.

P.S. If you plan to see this movie, DO NOT watch the trailer. GDT would agree with me!
