The feature film version of Fear Clinic – which is based on the FEARnet web series – has found a home at Anchor Bay, reports THR. No word yet as to when it plans to release the Rob Hall-directed feature, likely this fall.
In Fear Clinic, Dourif portrays Sara Falls (Fiona Dourif), a young woman whose phobias begins re-immerging and must seek out the specialized help of Dr. Andover (Robert Englund). Starring as Blake Patton is Thomas Dekker; Blake is a disabled man who is brought into the clinic after surviving a terrible tragedy. Also announced is Cleopatra Coleman in the role of the boy-crazy and feisty Megan McAllister, Sara’s best friend who takes arachnophobia to a whole new level.
The film opens with a tragedy that launches five people into the public eye and enlists Dr. Andover to lend his expertise to help them overcome trauma-induced phobias. A year later, terrifying ‘aftershocks’ rattle the survivors, leading to them finding their way back to the fear clinic seeking answers. As they line up for another turn in the chamber, Dr. Andover believes that something more sinister may be at work.
