New poster for Tribeca terror film “FEAR, INC.” gives you a handMovies/TV,News Michael Gingold
If you could actually live a horror movie, would you? That’s the offer made by the poster for the Tribeca Film Festival world premiere FEAR, INC., which you can see after the jump.
Debuting at the fest this Friday, April 15 at 9:45 p.m. and screening a few times thereafter (go here for details), FEAR, INC. was directed by Vincent Masciale from a script by Luke Barnett (the two previously collaborated on several Funny or Die videos). The cast is headed by Lucas Neff, Caitlin Stasey, Chris Marquette, Stephanie Drake, Abigail Breslin (see our exclusive photo of her here), Mark Moses, Richard Riehle, Patrick Renna, AMERICAN HORROR STORY: FREAK SHOW’s Naomi Grossman and THE HUMAN CENTIPEDE’s Ashlynn Yennie. The synopsis: “What if there was a company you could call that, for a premium, will bring your greatest fears to life? You don’t have to leave your house, your office, or your vacation; the scares are customized to your tastes and arrive at your doorstep when you least expect it. But like texting an ex at 2 a.m., what sounds like a great idea at the time can end up getting you killed.
“When horror-movie enthusiast Joe Foster [Neff] and his girlfriend, Lindsey Gains [Stasey], are handed a business card for such a company, Joe’s curiosity gets the best of him. As the Fear, Inc. experience seemingly begins, scares start popping up right out of Joe’s favorite horror movies, quickly turning him into a kid in a candy store—if the kid was a self-righteous 30-year-old and the candy store was the prop room from SAW. After a friend explains the company’s dangerous reputation, his rollercoaster of a journey goes from lighthearted fun to uncomfortably realistic as things take a major turn for the worse. Joe’s sense of reality spirals out of control as he’s forced to take responsibility for his actions, no matter the cost.”
