This one’s got it all. Simon Pegg. Creepy creatures with eyeballs in their mouths. Simon Pegg in pajamas. A psychiatrist in a pirate hat. A sneering, evil hedghog. Simon Pegg in his underwear.
That’s just scratching the surface of A Fantastic Fear Of Everything, a film written by Cripsian Mills and co-directed by Mills and Chris Hopewell, both first-time filmmakers. If you must, here’s the synopsis, though I recommend walking into the trailer blind:
Jack is a children’s author turned crime novelist whose detailed research into the lives of Victorian serial killers has turned him into a paranoid wreck, persecuted by the irrational fear of being murdered. When Jack is thrown a life-line by his long-suffering agent and a mysterious Hollywood executive takes a sudden and inexplicable interest in his script, what should be his big break rapidly turns into his big breakdown, as Jack is forced to confront his worst demons; among them his love life, his laundry and the origin of all fear.
Bizarre and creepy and weird and I kind of dig it.
