Peur(s) du noir / Fear(s) of the Dark
Spider's legs crawling on skin…
Things that go bump in the night…
A malevolent presence in an empty house…
A hypodermic needle growing inexorably closer...
A dead thing floating in a jar of formaldehyde…
A giant dog glaring, snarling and baring its teeth…

It is kids who fear the dark, but adults are not immune to it either. Darkness blinds our vision, making us believe we are surrounded by mysterious monsters, repulsive insects and other malicious creatures. In our daily lives, we use expressions such as “dark thoughts”, “dark secrets” or “dark dreams”. The feeling of unease we get in the dark goes back to ancient times.

A bunch of infamous, talented comics artists reveal their innermost nightmares, stripping them of colour and leaving them in the sheer blinding whiteness and pitch darkness of shadowy worlds. Their intertwining stories, each crafted out in a unique style, are glued together to make a hypnotic, surreal animated epic embodying phobias, aversion and nightmares, and revealing fear at its most naked, pristine and intense. A spicy, thrilling, insidious, and occasionally darkly humorous rollercoaster through mysterious vast spaces, which keep us wide awake. A film you don’t want to watch alone!
