Discussions about cartoons' content are usually limited to a few basic emotions. Do they make us laugh? Do they make us cry? Do they arouse us, make us think, make us want to take action?
No one ever seems to ask: What about the scariness?
With Hallowe'en around the corner, I present to you five animated works that, from start to finish, evoke fear and dread. So close the curtains, dim the lights, and pop these into your DVD players for a fright night.
#5: Claws for Alarm
#4: The Tell-Tale Heart
#3: Wicked City
#1: The Sandman
