The Homunculi are a race of mythical small nocturnal demonic fairy-like creatures native to the netherworld. They lurk in dark places and capture children to take their teeth and make them their own kind. The creatures serve as the main antagonists in the 2011 horror film Don't Be Afraid of the Dark.
These things dwell in darkness and are known to fear bright light.
- They're loosely based on the unnamed creatures from the 1973 TV film.
