The very first trailer for new horror feature Phobia has arrived, courtesy of Dread Central. You can view the rather impressive trailer below, but first here’s all the details we have so far on the indie horror.
Ruthless Pictures picked up North American rights to the psychological thriller Phobia, written by Matthew Barnes and Rory Abel, produced by Elias (Gut) and Mike Aransky (London Betty), and directed by Rory Abel. They will release the film in the US on DVD 25th November, no UK dates have yet been announced.
The film follows an agoraphobic man trapped in his own home and plagued by a malevolent spirit.
“We wanted to take the traditional haunted house scenario and approach it from a different perspective,” said director Abel.
Ruthless Pictures CEO Jesse Baget commented on the acquisition, “Rory and his team made a gripping psychological thriller that had me at the edge of my seat. I’m excited to be a part of the project.”
Leading the cast are Michael Jefferson (Sheer), Emma Dubery (Plague Town), Sarah Schoofs (Gut), Peter Gregus (The Producers), with a special appearance by scream queen Debbie Rochon.
Jonathan MacKinlay is a man trapped inside his home by his own mind. Suffering from agoraphobia, caused by a car accident that took his wife’s life; his existence has been reduced to a monotonous repetition of identical days. As his dread and self-loathing escalate, an onslaught of gruesome visions and twisted, waking nightmares begins to gnaw away at his last shred of sanity. Are these ghastly visions imaginary, private demons…or is he being victimized by a very real entity of infinite terror and unspeakable evil?
