About Fear Clinic

Horror legend Robert Englund (Freddy Krueger of the Nightmare on Elm Street blockbuster franchise) stars as the sinister, maniacal genius Dr. Andover. His obsession: to cure humanity’s worst fears. His method: the Fear Chamber, a device of his creation that can bring any worst fear to life. With Dr. Andover’s extreme methods his unwilling patients will be cured for good…or die trying!

The spine-tingling action of Fear Clinic will unfold over five webisodes. Each will spotlight Dr. Andover’s eerily extreme methods to help a patient at the clinic conquer their greatest fears: from hydrophobia (fear of water), scotophopia (fear of the dark), and entomophobia (fear of insects), to claustrophobia (fear of small spaces) and misophobia (fear of being contained with germs or dirt).

To further whet the horror enthusiasts’ appetite for blood, acting icons from three of Hollywood’s biggest horror movie franchises will appear together. Robert Englund will be joined on screen by fellow genre megastar Kane Hodder (Jason Voorhees in the Friday the 13th franchise) as well as Danielle Harris (Rob Zombie’s Halloween).

The project is directed by Robert Hall (Laid to Rest) with effects from his company Almost Human (Terminator: The Sarah Conner Chronicles, Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Quarantine, The Burrowers) from a script by Aaron R. Drane and executive produced by Mark B. Johnson and Jim Burns.
