Simon Pegg is scared to death in the first trailer for ‘A Fantastic Fear of Everything’

Due to arrive in UK cinemas on 8th June is the new Simon Pegg comedy, A Fantastic Fear of Everything. The film is a slightly dark comedy based on Jack (Pegg) who, thanks to his job as an author, has become a quivering wreck and scared of pretty much everything. Be it hedgehogs, laundrettes or his own underpants, poor old Jack has gone over the edge. The perfect role for Pegg to play then.

The film is written by Kula Shaker frontman Crispian Mils, and he also co-directed with Chris Hopewell. Among the supporting cast are names which include Paul Freeman, Clare Higgins, Amara Karan, Henry Lloyd-Hughes and Kerry Shale. The first trailer for the film, and rather amusing it is too, made its way online earlier today. Check it out below.


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.

A keen enthusiast and collector of all horror and extreme films. I can be picky as i like quality in my horror. This doesn't necessarily mean it has to be a classic, but as long as it has something to impress me then i'm a fan. I watch films by the rule that if it doesn't bring out some kind of emotive response then it aint worth watching.
