Simon Pegg is taking on the horror genre again, with his familiar comedic spin, of course. This time, the Shaun of the Dead scribe is playing a children's book author who's trying to reinvent himself as a crime novelist. Unfortunately, his background research into the lives of murderers causes his deepest phobias to reach epic levels.
Though it seems to be in the same vein as a lot of the actor's previous movies, A Fantastic Fear of Everything looks a bit more complex. I was surprised to learn that though Pegg is producing and starring in the movie, it was actually written and co-directed by film newcomer Crispian Mills. The animation also reminds me of the sort of creativity I adored in Scott Pilgrim vs. the World. Check out the trailer after the jump and stay tuned for a release date.
