SUNDANCE HORROR SENSATION In Fear BOWS MARCH 11TH ON BLU-RAY(TM), VOD AND DVD FROM ANCHOR BAY FILMS Exclusive Theatrical Engagements Begin March 7th!
BEVERLY HILLS, CA -, Having already conquered the Sundance Film Festival, In Fear, the critically acclaimed feature film debut of writer/director Jeremy Lovering, arrives March 11th on Blu-ray(TM), VOD and DVD from Anchor Bay Films. In Fear will also enjoy several U.S. exclusive theatrical engagements starting Friday, March 7th. SRP is $29.99 for the Blu-ray(TM) and $24.98 for the DVD, with pre-book on February 12th.
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 has taken the horror world by storm, garnering rave reviews wherever it is played. The film 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.
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.
JoBlo called In Fear "...a great film to watch curled up with a date on a dark and stormy night," while Screen Daily hailed it as "an old-fashioned white-knuckle horror thriller." TotalFilm gave the film 4 stars with "shredded-nerve performances," and Arrow In The Head warning viewers that "you won't be eager to go on any road trips soon after."
