Nyctophobia is an “an abnormal fear of night or darkness.”
You might think you don’t have it, but you do.
How does this deep, dark hole to nowhere make you feel? Interested in exploring?
Is this door calling out your name?
Imagine hearing a knock at the door in the middle of the night and finding this:
Or turning on your flashlight late at night and seeing this:
Imagine having to walk down this hallway to get where you need to go, the lights getting dimmer and dimmer…
Or having to go down these steps, each step bringing you closer into total darkness:
Imagine being on a boat in the middle of the ocean, looking to your right and seeing this coming out of the darkness:
Or turning back as you run up the stairs and seeing this:
Or driving alone and looking out your window and seeing this:
The dark can be so terrifying:
So, so terrifying:
I mean, what if one pair of these eyes doesn’t belong to a sheep?
What if you looked out that window and saw this?
And what if you followed this painting inside?
What’s behind this door?
Who wrote this?
And who in their right mind would ever go inside here?
Picture yourself walking by an abandoned hospital, looking up, and seeing just one light on:
Or coming across this in the middle of the woods:
Or looking into the water and seeing this:
Or just seeing this person waiting for you outside:
