Slated for release on August 26, 2011, Aussie actor Guy Pearce (overlooked for an amazing performance in “The King’s Speech,” and forever loved by indie fans for “Memento”) stars alongside Katie Holmes as a couple restoring a Gothic mansion into which Alex’s daughter has released whispering monsters.

Based on a 1973 television production, the 2011 version was co-written and co-produced by Guillermo del Toro (“Pan’s Labyrinth,” “Hellboy”) and was selected for the closing night slot at the Los Angeles Film Festival last month.

Guy Pearce, Guillermo del Toro and the film’s director, Troy Nixey, will be signing posters down at Comic-Con, along with Carey Mulligan from the Ryan Gosling-starrer “Drive,” at Bar 207 at 9:00 p.m. at the Hard Rock Hotel (207 5th Avenue, San Diego).
