Fear[s] of the Dark

It's not just the kids that are scared of the dark; there's some kind of fascination of the concept 'dark' that both scares and interests us. Right after the Halloween, we started getting a lot of horror movies in the theatres; but the thing is, the originality is going down the toilet because it's almost always just the remakes that we keep getting... Like recently, I went to check the movies at the cinema and there was the new (millionth that would be!) sequel of The Saw, yet another sequel of Final Destination, the remake of A Nightmare on Elm Street, another remakes of The Halloween... and so goes on the list.

Although it still hasn't met the Italian audience, there's a French thriller that is very interesting. It's a collection of horror stories created by six of the world's most renowned comic and graphic artists: Blutch, Charles Burns, Marie Caillou, Pierre Di Sciullo, Lorenzo Mattotti and Richard McGuire.
The stories include a Japanese school girl haunted by a long-dead samurai, growing dogs, a dead thing trapped in a bottle of formaldehyde, a big empty house with a presence within and so on... They are weaved perfectly to create tension, horror, disgust and ingredients for nightmare to come later on.
If you are up for a scare, then this is the perfect cut for you as Frankie Morello is.
