A few years ago, the legendary Pinewood Studios in England began an initiative to help fund lower budget British films. The first project supported by the studio was Crispian Mills and Chris Hopewell’s A Fantastic Fear Of Everything, an adaptation of the Bruce Robinson novella Paranoia In The Launderette. Simon Pegg stars as an unpublished children’s book author-turned-crime novelist who spirals into paranoia when he becomes obsessed with stories of Victorian serial killers. It’s a “semi-comedy,” with long stretches of darkness lifted by Pegg’s manic and cripplingly fearful performance. Released in the UK all the way back in summer 2012, the film is finally getting a stateside run.
