HAUNTED reviewed by Metapsychology

Review - Haunted, by Philippe Dupuy

Metapsychology Online Reviews    |    Christian Perring    |    June 11, 2008

Haunted is a collection of seven fantasies by comic/graphic artist Philippe Dupuy. Most of them are what he calls "Run Movies" because he has them as he is jogging. They are bizarre and surreal, with the same sort of logic in the narrative as dreams, featuring talking animals and impossible events. They are quite disturbing, featuring violence and breaches of the natural order. Yet they are also funny and occasionally whimsical ... Reading them feels like getting a glimpse of Dupuy's unconscious, and it's a little disturbing, although no more so than it would be seeing anyone else's deepest fears and thoughts expressed in fantasy form....
