    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 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.

    For all its comic panache, A Fantastic Fear of Everything too often feels forced rather than funny — the strain evident in the setup is rarely worth the payoff, and the result simply proves exhausting.

    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.

    At the very least, Fantastic Fear of Everything has a fantastic central performance. And sometimes that's enough.
