Get ready to be scared!
In the upcoming horror film Don't Be Afraid of the Dark (in theaters Aug. 26), Katie Holmes plays a woman who's struggling to bond with her new boyfriend's daughter. When the little girl starts seeing terrifying creatures in their home, the adults don't believe her -- until it's too late.
iVillage got its hands on an exclusive clip from the movie. In the video, Holmes, 32, explains that being a mom (to 5-year-old Suri Cruise) helped her relate to her character. "Anytime your child is in the other room and you hear a noise, your heart’s out of your chest and your adrenaline kicks in," she says.
Watch the exclusive clip below for a behind-the-scenes look at the frightening film:
