Exclusive photo: Abigail Breslin terrorized in Tribeca Fest film “FEAR, INC.”Movies/TV,News Michael Gingold
Last year, one of the highlights of the Tribeca Film Festival was Abigail Breslin’s turn in the zombie drama MAGGIE; this year, she’s back at the fest in the fright feature FEAR, INC. We’ve got the exclusive first photo of Breslin from the movie.
World-premiering at the Tribeca Fest on Friday, April 15 (see more info here), FEAR, INC. takes off from the current craze for haunted attractions, imagining what would happen if an event company could bring the terror to you—and something went wrong. Directed by Vincent Masciale from a script by Luke Barnett, based on their short of the same title (the duo also created Funny or Die videos like A GAME OF THRONES HALLOWEEN and THE WALKING FRED), it additionally stars Lucas Neff, Caitlin Stasey from ALL CHEERLEADERS DIE, Chris Marquette, Stephanie Drake, Mark Moses, Richard Riehle, Patrick Renna, AMERICAN HORROR STORY: FREAK SHOW’s Naomi Grossman and THE HUMAN CENTIPEDE’s Ashlynn Yennie (who appeared in the short as well). The synopsis: “What if there was a company you could call that, for a premium, will bring your greatest fears to life? You don’t have to leave your house, your office, or your vacation; the scares are customized to your tastes and arrive at your doorstep when you least expect it. But like texting an ex at 2 a.m., what sounds like a great idea at the time can end up getting you killed.
“When horror-movie enthusiast Joe Foster [Neff] and his girlfriend, Lindsey Gains [Stasey], are handed a business card for such a company, Joe’s curiosity gets the best of him. As the Fear, Inc. experience seemingly begins, scares start popping up right out of Joe’s favorite horror movies, quickly turning him into a kid in a candy store—if the kid was a self-righteous 30-year-old and the candy store was the prop room from SAW. After a friend explains the company’s dangerous reputation, his rollercoaster of a journey goes from lighthearted fun to uncomfortably realistic as things take a major turn for the worse. Joe’s sense of reality spirals out of control as he’s forced to take responsibility for his actions, no matter the cost.” Look for more on FEAR, INC. as it plays Tribeca.
