Fear(s) of the dark is a French animated experiment in anthology horror crafted by a number of different animators, graphic designers, and comic book creators. Within the confines of two framing narratives, Fear(s) of the Dark features 5 tales in different animation styles and technique to illustrate a particular theme concerning the nature of fears and the source of our dread. Each segment has its own unique visual tone and voice used in examining the underlying anatomy of different types of fear: the isolation, madness, persecution, nightmares and enigmas that drive our dread and fuel our terrors. In examining the psychological roots behind terror, the film raises the question: how much fear is truly derived from external sources, and how much is simply reflections our own inner darkness and mental turmoil? Haunting and engaging, this beautifully animated anthology explores the furthest limits and deepest recesses of horror, from secret terrors in darkest shadow to the foulest pit of our inner minds.moreless

    An omnibus of black-and-white animation with a couple exceptionally clever episodes tied together by an unnecessary recurring monologue.
