Product Details

Conceived along the lines of Showtime's Masters of Horror, NBC's Fear Itself was a dramatic anthology consisting of 13 separate hour-long films, each one a spinetingling exercise in psychological and physiological terror. The series boasted the combined efforts of some of show business' top horror writers and directors: talents like John Landis, Ronny Yu (the "Chucky" films), Darren Lynn Bousman (the "Saw" series), Dan Knauf (Supernatural), Mary Harron (American Psycho), Breck Eisner, Brad Anderson, Jon Gangemi, Steve Niles, and Fear Itself's creator Mick Garris. Similarly, the guest stars were drawn from the ranks of the sci-fi/fantasy realm, among them Lost's Cynthia Watros, Heroes' Eric Roberts and Star Trek: Enterprise's John Billingsley. Though not as explicit as Masters of Horror, the NBC series still succeeded admirably in raising the collective goose pimples of its fans. Fear Itself first aired on June 5, 2008.
