Simon Pegg dominated the screen in A Fantastic Fear of Everything. He controlled it like it was on a leash, dragging it, and subsequently us the audience, along with him on his journey through a minor but substantial psychological break where he thinks he is going to be murdered at any moment. The films progression is a delicious concoction of horror, comedy, animation, and more comedy. Mix all of that together and sprinkle in serial killers and a hint of romance, and you’ve got one wacky, intriguing, and genuinely entertaining flick.

Verdict: Wait for the DVD/Blu-ray
