Katie Holmes may have first come to fame as a wholesome teen in Dawson's Creek, but the actress has confessed to a love of horror films.

The 32-year-old, who stars alongside Guy Pearce in new film Don't Be Afraid Of The Dark, said she had developed a taste for scary movies.

"I'm a fan of classic horror films like The Exorcist or Rosemary's Baby," she admitted.

She added that Don't Be Afraid Of The Dark, produced and written by Guillermo del Toro, bore a resemblance to her old favourites.

"This reminded me a lot of those films because the characters were going through real emotional problems, there was tension, there were high stakes, and so the scare is more scary," she said.

The film focuses on a young girl who moves to a gothic mansion with her father and his new girlfriend, played by Katie, but discovers an army of monsters under the house eager to claim her.
