When suddenly, a shrill creaking sound comes from your wooden cabinet. "It must be the wind." But we're inside and the doors are closed. "No but it's an old cabinet." Except you bought it less than a year ago from a famous Swedish furniture brand. "It must have been in the show." Except the credits roll on a black screen... Okay, we get it, creepy moment! But in fact, what is the fear concretely? Answer with a special Quarter of an hour "Fear!", a mini-conference shifted and ludic to learn a little more about this emotion which makes us sometimes tremble.
