This French-made chiller proves just how scary a pitch-black theatre can be.
Maybe different things scare the French. But I'll give them this: Prattling monologues can be unsettling.
Audience Reviews for Peur(s) du Noir (Fear(s) of the Dark)
I fear nothing in the dark, except the creepy narrator. Fear of the Dark live up to it's title, a black and white anthology horror film centred on the worst(?) fears of the animators. However, ti was not scary at all, I only like the first story, the rest bored me to death and didn't make any sense. It is filled with expressionist ideas but failed to present it properly.
You should definitely give it a try if you're into short stories, animated movies, and like the Animatrix (which is also a collection of short animations with a shared theme). The last animation is my favorite.
Fear(s) of the Dark isn't the horror film I was hoping for. It's creepy, twisted and dark, but is also distant. It's really a portfolio of work collected by a number of talented animators. Each of the individual tales has a dreamlike quality, allowing the films to avoid any responsibility they may have to tell a story. The artistic skills on display can't be challenged in anyway, but so much more could have been achieved with the expansion of just one story. Certainly worth a look for some imaginative imagery.
