Sundance Horror Sensation IN FEAR Bows On Blu-ray March 11th!


In-Fear-ThumbHome invasion movies are one of the current popular subgenre trends of horror in the last couple years.  They are one of the easy to cheaply exploit routes to take for young up and coming filmmakers to tackle.  The challenge is always putting your own stamp on things.  You may be knocking something off, that’s obvious, but HOW you do it is key.  Last summer we saw two examples of this subgenre.  One put its own creative spin on it and made for a great horror film (You’re Next) while the other had a fun concept but took a rather stale and boring approach to things (The Purge).  Anchor Bay’s In Fear looks like its got an interesting enough pitch, so I’m pretty excited to see if they’re are going to have the execution to match.  This one takes place in a car instead of a home.  Its also got a Sundance Festival label on it too, so that means it may not be completely bottom of the barrel if its dreck.  There’s no pre-order available yet, but as soon as we get one, we’ll have it here for you at Why So Blu.

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™, 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™ 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.”
