One of mankind's oldest and most pervasive fears serves as the subject of this illuminating documentary. Why is it that when the lights go out, our defenses go up' Did our experiences in the days before electricity leave us hardwired to fear the dark' In this film we discover how bandits in the Middle Ages used the shroud of darkness to launch deadly attacks, and just why our ancestors became convinced that vampires and werewolves stalked the nighttime shadows.
