Unread post by jemiNii da'Boss » 1 month ago

Fear Itself is a horror/suspense anthology television series shot in the city of Edmonton, Alberta, Canada, with some additional shooting in the city of St. Albert and the town of Devon, Alberta. It began airing on June 5, 2008 on NBC.

Its title is derived from the famous Franklin D. Roosevelt quote, “The only thing we have to fear is fear itself.” The anthology was born out of Masters of Horror and shares several of the same creative elements. It features self-contained horror/thriller stories directed by the biggest horror directors working in features today, both shows were created by Mick Garris, and both shows are produced by Industry Entertainment’s Andrew Deane, Adam Goldworm and Ben Browning. Stuart Gordon, Brad Anderson, John Landis and Rob Schmidt all directed at least one episode of each series. Guest stars included Eric Roberts, Anna Kendrick, Brandon Routh, Briana Evigan, Elisabeth Moss, and Cory Monteith. The song in the opening credits is entitled “Lie Lie Lie” by System of a Down frontman Serj Tankian, from his first solo album Elect the Dead.

On March 13, 2009, it was confirmed that the series had been canceled and would not be returning to NBC. The complete series was released on DVD on September 15, 2009.
