    Strands of Simon Pegg's amiable persona are found in the film's more tolerable bits, but even this seasoned vet's unique voice is lost amid the glut of references to other work.

    The dreary, loud, amateurish horror-comedy A Fantastic Fear of Everything...isn’t terribly interested in logic. Or continuity. Or filmmaking acumen. Or, most glaringly, laughs.

    Crispian Mills's London-based horror-comedy is so spectacularly bungled that it leaves the viewer in a state of advanced petrification.

    It is three parts The Mighty Boosh to two parts The Goon Show, which, when mixed with the quite astonishing lack of wit and finesse seen here, makes for pure cinematic strychnine.

    The Fantastic Fear Of Everything is weird enough to have a mind boggling story and a crazy Simon Pegg, isn't that enough to keep you from notThe Fantastic Fear Of Everything is weird enough to have a mind boggling story and a crazy Simon Pegg, isn't that enough to keep you from not watching this movie? It's a helload of crap being literally dropped at the Sundance Film Festival. It's weird as hell and Simon Pegg is being humiliated with the hilariously bad script and direction on screen. Avoid.
