Charles Burns Explores Fear(s) in the Dark

ON has an exclusive interview with artist Charles Burns, creator of the disturbing graphic novel “Black Hole”, talking about Fear(s) of the Dark, a French horror anthology film assembled by Etienne Robial to examine the nightmares that scare us all.

Burns’ 18 minute short film is right up his alley, dealing with a man who collects insects but has trouble relating to women until he meets a beautiful woman who seems to like him. Their relationship takes a dark turn after they sleep together and she becomes… well, let’s just say “predatory.” Needless to say, it’s pretty amazing to see Burns’ distinctive vision brought to animated life, and it’s probably even more jarring than his comics tend to be.
