Alt-Horror: Deep Dark Fears: A Webcomic
While our primary focus is on horror movies, there are times when something spooky gets our attention from less conventional spaces. One such place is Deep Dark Fears; a webcomic series by Fran Krause. I stumbled upon Fran Krause’s work while hanging around Tumblr a few years ago, and I’ve been a big fan ever since. What Deep Dark Fears does is unique. Users submit their deepest fears to Fran in hopes that he’ll visualize and draw them out for them. Sometimes what’s created is sort of hilarious, at other times it’s incredibly disturbing. But the entire time it’s quite entertaining.
I managed to track Fran down and ask him about his work, how he got started, what his process is for each piece, and what the fuck is with that one scene in The Shining.
