From the abruptly terrifying to the deeply symbolic, seven very different visionary directors have come together, each exploring human nature's greatest fears, to create one of the finest (not to mention, creepiest) animated features in years: Fear(s) Of The Dark.
This collaboration of animated short films is guaranteed to leave you shocked and scared as well as confused and unnerved. It is not a film to watch like you would with any other- it doesn't have a beginning, a middle and an end. It is more a film to savor and admire as a stunning collection of artwork from seven truly talented artists.
Even so, there were admittedly several moments that genuinely scared me just like a good horror film would. The directors tap into all the classic concepts and genres of fear. (No, we're not talking vampires and zombies.) For example, fear of what's under the bed; fear of isolation; and in the final, greatly successful short... Fear of the dark.
This is essential viewing for all horror fans, genre completists and artists. I was inspired.
