Our fears are usually worse than the reality - but not always. Sometimes, things are even worse than we fear.
Seven nightmarish tales from legendary British horror film writer and producer David McGillivray: collaborator with Pete Walker and Norman J. Warren, and the fiendish screenwriter behind House of Whipcord, Frightmare, House of Mortal Sin, Schizo, Satanâ€™s Slave and Terror.
The greater part of our fears lies below the surface of awareness, embedded in the terrors of our unconscious. Itâ€™s easy to turn away from the part we can see, like a child pretending itâ€™s not there. But if we start pulling the threads and disturb where our fears have taken root, we risk dragging our worst nightmares into the light...
For the first time on DVD and featuring all-new material, Worst Fears is in the blood-soaked tradition of classic Hammer and Amicus anthologies, with a dash of BBC Ghost Stories and Tales of the Unexpected. Includes the award-winning In The Place Of The Dead.
Filmed on location in Marrakech, Lisbon, Nice and London, the remarkable cast includes Rebecca Santos (Seed of Chucky), Fenella Fielding (Carry On Screaming!), Rosie Alvarez (Casualty), Victor Spinetti (Help!, The Krays), Holly de Jong (The Last Horror Film, Electric Dreams), Sir Clement Freud (Minced Morsels), Anna Wing (Xtro, The Blood on Satanâ€™s Claw, Eastenders), Ben Pullen (Dark Knight) - and McGillivray himself.
"The worst fears are those which you absolutely know will be borne out, but nobody else recognises - so you are alone with them.
