In Fear Of, for those unfamiliar started out as a web based series on YouTube, that will be premiering its second season on Vimeo. Its a nod to the shows we knew and loved growing up like, The Twilight Zone, Amazing Stories and Tales From the Crypt. Its a blend of horror, science fiction, drama and humor, meaning there is something that will appeal to everyone. It takes on the clinical phobias that people live with and forces you to stand face to face with your deepest fear.
Season two tackles some great phobias with fear of insanity, fear of aging, fear of deformity, agoraphobia, and fear of abandonment just to name a few. If you haven't read my previous reviews for the first season let me tell you I really enjoyed what Scott W Perry, creator of the series, and the various other directors did, but for as good as season one was season two knocks it out of the park! The series has an amazing list of fantastic indie names attached, its like a who's who list of indie horror! This anthology series continues with various top notch directors and writers taking on the individual phobias, offering a new mix of talent for each episode, making for an always interesting take on things, and a wide variance of styles to engage the viewer. In Fear of offers a true series alternative that is just as polished as something you may catch on mainstream media outlets but with a freshness in ideas that is harder to come by.
Heres some of the people to watch for in the upcoming season. Suzi Lorraine, who blew me away in both Dementophobia:Fear of Insanity and Gerontophobia:Fear of Aging. award winning actress Debbie Rochon, Barbara Rosenblat (Orange Is The New Black), Kelly Rae LeGault who did a fantastic job in Fear of Poisoning, along with other greats such as Edward X Young, Rachael Robbins, Bradley Creanzo, Anne Bobby (Nightbreed), and thats not even the full list of talented actors attached to season 2! They didn't slouch on directors either with Jeremiah Kipp, Robert L Brodmerkle, Thomas Norman,and even Scott W Perry, creator of the series helms a few of the episodes. He truly has brought together some incredible names for horror fans to feast on this second season of In Fear Of. So do yourself a favor, indulge on a bit of vimeo viewing, these would be a great way to wile away the lunchtime hour! I'm already looking forward to season 3!
Season two of In Fear Of premiers June 13th on Vimeo, check out the official trailer for season 2 below.
