“A horror anthology adapted from literature. The idea is to associate several authors and directors to form a scary animated film anthology. Based on this observation, and in particular with a strong urge to deal with these horrifying subjects, that we wanted to embark on the adventure of this anthology bringing together six adaptations of French or international short stories. Among the authors we have selected, the choice of works was ultimately focused on feelings rather than on a purely logical thematic, and it is this diversity that makes the strength and the strangeness of this anthology. From horror, fear or anguish, we found it fascinating to set side by side Laura Kasischke and H.P. Lovecraft or Jean Ray and the Grimm brothers and William Tenn, including Edgar Allan Poe.”

An early look at an animated feature project in production from France’s Folimage and Les Films du tambour de soie, including a segment directed by 2021 Satoshi Kon Award jury president Hefang Wei.
