Fear(s) of the Dark - Edgy Animation

Spiders' legs brushing against naked skin… Unexplainable noises heard at night in a dark bedroom… A big empty house where you feel a presence… A hypodermic needle getting closer and closer… A dead thing trapped in a bottle of formaldehyde… A huge growling dog, baring its teeth and staring…(
If you're like me, the dark symbolizes another world, a world where spirits and demons rule and where your only hope of escape is the sheer will to regain consciousness, then you'll love what is in store in the theaters soon. Using the theme of darkness and all the imaginings that can lie in this mysterious realm, director Etienne Robial with some of the most talented international graphic artists: Blutch, Charles Burns, Marie Caillou, Pierre di Sciullo, Jerry Kramsky, Lorenzo Mattotti, Richard McGuire, Michel Pirus, Romain Slocombe, created Fears(s) of the Dark. Already receiving acholades at the Sundance, Los Angeles, and Fantastic festivals, this film can easily become a modern graphic classic.
