In A Fantastic Fear of Everything Jack’s (Simon Pegg) life seems like a relatively realistic struggle with anxiety, until his fears start to manifest themselves in a fantastic way. I love Simon Pegg’s humor, but this movie seems that it will have some touching seriousness. Here’s the synopsis followed by the trailer.
Jack (Simon Pegg) 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.
