Fear(s) of the Dark should put to rest once and for all any qualms about mixing animation with angst.

This French-made chiller proves just how scary a pitch-black theatre can be.

Fear(s) of the Dark is an unusual little confection, bound to be interesting to most viewers and downright riveting to artists and illustrators.

Capital Times (Madison, WI)

The fear inspired by these stories is more akin to dread, a slow, creeping suspicion that something is not quite right ...

This may not be everyone's idea of either scary or great animation, but it is a generally successful attempt to marry the two forms in a unique way.

The fear described here is not visceral or familiar, but it is incisive. What if civilization is inexplicable?
