About the film:

Official Selection of Sundance Film Festival and Fantastic Fest. Screened as part of Rendez-Vous With French Cinema in New York in 2008.

A wildly inventive and visually dazzling collection of fearful tales by six renowned comic and graphic artists – Blutch, Charles Burns, Marie Caillou, Pierre Di Sciullo, Lorenzo Mattotti, and Richard McGuire.

“Razor-sharp images that will slice your eye and nest there forever. Thrilling, disturbing, and haunting”

– Guillermo Del Toro

From a besotted student whose girlfriend is weirdly ardent in her affections, to a Japanese schoolgirl menaced by a long-dead samurai, and a pack of hounds on a bloodthirsty rampage, Fear(s) of the Dark has a story strand to trouble every sleep – not to mention a stunning range of animation styles. Shot in shimmering black and white, the six intertwined tales create an unprecedented epic where phobias and nightmares come to life and reveal Fear at its most naked and intense.
