Rational boredom. Perhaps its me, that watching decades of horror films has left me jaded and able to predict the action in banal and mindless twaddle like Irrational Fear. The movie reminded me of those direct-to-video slashers of the 80s, the plastic covers promising extreme violence, sex or both and more often than not, failing to deliver. I wanted to enjoy the film, honestly, but the poor production values, shoddy camera work, incompetent direction and uneven acting wore me down. It really is a shame because there is some talent evident.
Terror Films has acquired the worldwide digital rights to Hunter Johnson’s Irrational Fear. The story centers around six therapy patients who are brought together at a secluded cabin. Here, they confront their strangest fears; including germs, bugs, drowning, choking and losing teeth, to name just a few. But these fears won’t just hurt them…they may very well kill them! Executive producer Kevin Sommerfield co-wrote the script with Johnson, who also produced alongside Chris Gierowski and Jay Sorenson. The film is set to hit digital platforms Friday, 24th July.
