Darkness prevents us from seeing, and in the dark we convince ourselves that in the darkness lurks beasts, insects, and other malevolent creatures. Six animators go back to the origins of their fears to draw them and to inspire themselves with their nightmares.

This superb collection of short animated horror films shows just what can be done with both animation and the horror genre. Five unique artists with diverse and often brilliant animation styles that manage to coalesce into an extraordinary whole. This is a near masterpiece that deserves wider recognition.
(Vu qekpart sur le web) Tout d'abord, ce film est une incontestable réussite artistique! Il parvient étonnamment bien à conserver le style propre à chacun des auteurs de BD qui réalisent ses différents segments. L'utilisation du noir et blanc est variée et tjs magnifique. Certains courts ressortent clairement du lot: je pense en particulier à ceux de C. Burns et de L. Mattoti, petits joyaux de surréalisme morbide!
