We now have a third clip from the UK thriller In Fear (review), the critically acclaimed feature film debut of writer/director Jeremy Lovering, arriving March 11th on Blu-ray, VOD and DVD from Anchor Bay Films. In Fear will also enjoy several U.S. exclusive theatrical engagements starting Friday, March 7th.
In addition, check out a making-of video featurette that goes behind the scenes on the set of In Fear. They explain: “Each day began with Alice and Iain being given a couple of script outline pages to look over. Though not always the same version — suspicion and mistrust were being built every day. And nothing was revealed apart from the kind of thing they might talk about, examples of dialogue, their possible state of mind and a barometer of their relationship. In fact it often read like a relationship drama — none of the events, the horror beats were written down – so filming would begin innocuously enough and then something would surprise them… A door might slam, a branch land on the car roof, footsteps in the distance. And increasingly, because the shoot was chronological, day-by-day there was a steady escalation of fear. They couldn’t relax because they didn’t know if this would be the day when something bad happened. Every moment had a real sense of unease and tension. They couldn’t anticipate the scare or prepare themselves for the jump — they just had to experience it for real.”
“In Fear is a tense psychological horror about a young couple’s fight to make it through the night. Home invasion but in a car. In real-time. Tom (De Caestecker) and Lucy (Englert) are trapped in a maze of country roads with only their vehicle for protection, terrorized by an unseen tormentor hell-bent on exploiting their worst fears. Driving, lost and tormented in the night, primal fears of the dark and the unknown give way to fear that you have let the evil in, or that it is already there.”
Starring Iain De Caestecker (ABC’s hit series “Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D”), Alice Englert (Beautiful Creatures) and Allen Leech (“Downton Abbey”), In Fear stunned audiences in international film festivals in nine countries, including Canada’s Toronto After Dark, Germany’s Rosebud Entertainment Fantasy Festival, Spain’s Fancine – Festival de Cine Fantastico and South Korea’s Puchon International Fantastic Film Festival.
