There isn’t a movie genre she won’t tackle! Actress Katie Holmes took on the role of a worried surrogate mother in the upcoming horror film Don’t Be Afraid Of The Dark, hitting theaters Aug. 26. 

In the film, a family moves into a new house, but things get scary when the little girl starts being haunted by spirits residing in the home. The frightening flick is a remake of a previous film, and was produced by Hollywood heavy hitter Guillermo del Toro (Hell Boy, Pan’s Labyrinth). Actor Guy Pierce takes on the role of Katie’s boyfriend in the movie, and his onscreen daughter is played by up-and-comer Bailee Madison. 

Taking on the role of a mother is not too far of a stretch for Katie.

The Hollywood mom was recently snapped on the beach with her adorable daughter Suri Cruise. Suri’s footwear was quite impractical for a beach romp, but Katie was also spotted wearing a pair of brown kitten-heeled sandals as she chased after her daughter. 

In addition to her motherly duties and the upcoming promotion of Don’t Be Afraid of the Dark, the actress will also be starring in a new rom-com titled Responsible Adults alongside Gossip Girl guy Chace Crawford.
