Toronto After Dark Review: A Fantastic Fear of Everything

A Fantastic Fear of Everything is a horror comedy that is as off-kilter as the writer who Simon Pegg portrays in the film. Pegg plays Jack, a former children’s author turned crime novelist who suffers from a mild case of Panophobia (fear of everything). Part of the reason for this is his latest work, a […]
