Watch a behind-the-scenes look at the chilling new movie, in theaters Aug. 26

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:
