"Which doesn't frighten us at all"

Pourquoi pas, "qui ne nous effraie/effraye pas du tout" ?

Hi J, 

I think what you are asking is why don't we use the verb 'effrayer' instead of faire peur à used in the text.

We could but I am afraid French people seem to prefer -

qui ne nous fait pas peur du tout 

to

qui ne nous effraie pas du tout.

Not sure why ...

Hope this helps!
