PHOBIA SCREENING AT GRINDHOUSE NIGHTS
BLOODY DISGUSTING EXCLUSIVE REGARDING ‘PHOBIA’S’ OFFICIAL DVD RELEASE NOVEMBER 25TH BY RLJ/IMAGE ENTERTAINMENT!
“Phobia succeeds by putting us in the same house as a man slowly losing his mind. Phobia is tense, it’s engaging, and at times it creeped me the hell out. Jefferson is right where he needs to be as Jonathan, a ticking time-bomb of crazysauce; Schoofs- the beautifully blood-soaked memory of guilt and remorse; and Dubery & Ruth, well-meaning friends caught in the middle of a really terrific shit-storm without an umbrella.”
“Phobia is worth a look and it works well accurately portraying life while dealing with agoraphobia, it will definitely get you thinking especially with that ending. So keep your eyes out for this one as it hits DVD this November 25th.”
“AND THE AWARD FOR THE MOST DISTURBING HORROR POSTER OF THE YEAR GOES TO……..”
“Kudos to those involved with the marketing for Phobia and I’m not even sure if something like this happens in the actual movie, but based on the poster alone, I’ll be watching.”
““Phobia” definitely sucked me in, and succeeded in portraying the more human elements of the narrative as horrific. The performances by the entire cast are impressive, especially by MacKinlay and Dubrey, as they help keep “Phobia” on a strong pace to a spooky finale. “Phobia” is an entertaining, cerebral horror drama, and one that deserves a watch for fans that love slow boil genre entries.”
“There aren’t that many Agoraphobia-related movies out there. The only one I’ve seen was the 1992 made-for-TV thriller “The Fear Inside” (anyone remembers that?) which wasn’t that good. “Phobia” is fortunately much, much better, not just in terms of tension or creepiness, but also in the way how it portrays and deals with this horrifying anxiety disorder, thanks to an absolutely incredible performance by Michael Jefferson whose intense and believable acting simply blew me away. When his character’s frightened, I got frightened too. Impressive as hell! There’s also some fabulous-as-always acting by curly hottie Sarah Schoofs (since “Gut” one of my favorite indie actresses), plus more neat performances by Andrew Ruth and Peter Gregus.”
