Promising a lethal mix of scares and laughs, Fear Inc is a billed a ‘genre junkie’s delight’.

Directed by Vincent Masciale, who has a host of shorts, as well as series The Walking Fred to his name, the film looks to tap in to society’s thirst for ever-dangerous, interactive entertainment.

Here’s the blurb:

Nothing is ever scary enough for unemployed horror fanboy Joe. Completely underwhelmed by a haunted house attraction he visits with his girlfriend Lindsay one date night, a creepy stranger gives him a business card for the mysterious service ‘Fear, Inc.’, a company

promising to bring personal nightmares to life… for a price. Despite warnings about the corporation’s dubious reputation, Joe calls the next day – Halloween – and sets off a chain of terrifying events that echoes such classic horror cinema as SCREAM, SAW, THE SHINING and FRIDAY THE 13th. Fasten your seatbelts, it’s going to be a bump-in-the-night ride!

Genre favourite Abigail Breslin appears, along with the likes of Lucas Neff and Chris Marquette, who appeared in Freddy vs Jason back in the day.

Here’s a trailer for the film which will screen at Horror Channel Frightfest at 6pm on October 22:
