Exclusive: Richard McGuire's Fear(s) of the Dark Clip

During Fantastic Fest in Austin last month, I caught an incredible animated horror film called Fear(s) of the Dark. Well, actually, it's a collection of short films, roughly four in total, all created by some of the world's most cutting-edge, acclaimed graphic artists. My favorite segment was the last one, illustrated by Richard McGuire. His story explored the use of light and dark in an imaginative and wonderful way with a story about a man who settles down to get some rest in an abandoned house but discovers it is anything but that. Today we present an exclusive clip from Richard McGuire's segment that you'll find nowhere else. And don't forget Fear(s) of the Dark is showing in theaters this weekend!

Watch the exclusive clip for Fear(s) of the Dark:

Fear(s) of the Dark features segments written and directed by graphic artists Blutch, Charles Burns, Marie Caillou, Pierre Di Sciullo, Lorenzo Mattotti, Richard McGuire, Romain Slocombe, Jerry Kramsky, Michel Pirus, and Etienne Robial. The film first premiered at the Rome International Film Festival and has since gone on to tour the festival circuit worldwide. IFC Films picked up US distribution rights and will be debuting Fear(s) of the Dark in limited theaters starting on October 24th this fall.

It didn't come out where I live, and I am upset because we have one of the southeast's biggest conventions for horror and sci-fi. I guess I will have to rent it.
