There are so many ways to be afraid, and you can explore a bunch of ’em via IN FEAR OF: THE ANTHOLOGY CUT, which is now available exclusively on Amazon Prime.
Created by Scott W. Perry, IN FEAR OF was originally conceived as a web series and explores common and not-so-common terrors. Perry and horror fave Debbie Rochon co-directed the first segment, “Glossophobia: Fear of Acting and Speaking in Public,” in which Rochon also stars and which was nominated for a Rondo Award for Best Short Film. The other chapters, directed by Perry, Rochon, Robert L. Brodmerkel, Stolis Hadjicharalambous and Thomas Norman, are “Gerontophobia: Fear of Aging,” starring Suzi Lorraine (WON TON BABY), “Autophobia: Fear of Abandonment,” starring Larry Wade Carrell (JACOB), “Toxiophobia: Fear of Being Poisoned,” starring Kelly Rae LeGault (JOHN WICK CHAPTER 2) and Manoush Vasquez (THE SUPER), “Agoraphobia: Fear of Leaving Home,” starring Anne Bobby (NIGHTBREED), “Merinthophobia: Fear of Being Bound,” starring Kaylee Williams (ONCE, WHEN I WAS DEAD), “Taphaphobia: Fear of Being Buried Alive” starring Zack Locuson and “Achluophobia: Fear of The Dark” (pictured), starring Raine Brown (TORTURE CHAMBER).
