A Fantastic Fear of Everything (2012)

Directors: Crispian Mills, Chris Hopewell

Stars: Simon Pegg, Paul Freeman, Amara Karan

Jack is a children's author turned crime novelist whose detailed research into the lives of Victorian serial killers has turned him into a paranoid wreck, persecuted by the irrational fear of being murdered. When Jack is thrown a life-line by his long-suffering agent and a mysterious Hollywood executive takes a sudden and inexplicable interest in his script, what should be his big break rapidly turns into his big breakdown, as Jack is forced to confront his worst demons; among them his love life, his laundry and the origin of all fear.

This movie started out so strange and a bit uninteresting. It was just a guy that was terrified that someone was going to kill him in his apartment. This goes on for a while, until he decides to leave the house and wash a few clothes. I was just lost, but luckily the movie changed directions. The movie got better from the middle to the end.

This movie seemed like it was made for Simon Pegg. There are several scenes in this movie that is similar to some of his other well known movies. Some of the dialogue in the movie was funny, but it seemed like the same jokes and reactions that we have seen before in other movies. The scenes in the laundry mat are pretty funny.

This is a movie worth watching once, but I just do not know if the movie is a rewatcher or not. It really maybe to some of you out there. It is just my opinion. There will be many of you that will like this movie. Enjoy.
