ANCHOR BAY FILMS TO DISTRIBUTE ROBERT HALL’S FEATURE FEAR CLINIC

Robert Englund, Fiona Dourif, Thomas Dekker, Corey Taylor, Kevin Gage, Cleopatra Coleman and Angelina Armani Star

SUNDANCE, UTAH –– Anchor Bay Films announced today it has acquired all rights, including theatrical, VOD, digital and home entertainment, to Robert Hall’s latest film Fear ClinicFear Clinic began as a 2009 horror series on FEARnet and quickly garnered critical acclaim, earning two Streamy Awards.  Produced by Fear Chamber Productions, Dry County Entertainment, the company founded by director Hall (MTV’s “Teen Wolf”, Laid to Rest, Lightning Bug) and The Movie Machine, Fear Clinic will be released in late 2014.   Anchor Bay Entertainment President, Bill Clark, made today’s announcement.

Written by Robert Hall and Aaron Drane who also serves as producer, Fear Clinic veers from the episodic series by exploring a number of phobias, all stemming from one common traumatic event involving the lead characters.  The story revolves around the cerebral nature of fear itself and its all-too-real manifestation inside people’s minds.
