What with Halloween almost upon us, I recommend the wonderful Fear(s) of the Dark as a fright filled treat. A series of six short monochrome animations that each tells a very different nightmarish tale using a range of techniques from pencil drawing to abstracted shapes.
You might not be all that partial to every film, and you may find Bluth's offering particularly nasty (12A certification?!?), but the work of sci-fi cartoonist Charles Burns, French animator Marie Caillou and American illustrator Richard McGuire really shines out.
