An interplanetary cast of bogeymen haunt this scary, stylish animation portmanteau.

The comic book legend Charles Burns lends his inimitable gifts to this sweetly creepy set of black-and-white graphic works. From a besotted student whose girlfriend seems – well, a little too ardent, to a Japanese schoolgirl menaced by a long-dead samurai and a pack of hounds on a bloodthirsty rampage, this has a story strand to trouble every sleep – not to mention a stunning range of animation styles.

Not suitable for children.
