Initial Impression: A quick look at the cast list will have horror fans jumping out of their seat in preparation for Octobers 5-part web series Fear Clinic. It stars Robert Englund (Freddy Krueger) as a doctor who treats phobias by forcing his patients to live through their fears he is being supported by Kane Hodder (Jason Voorhees) and Danielle Harris (Rob Zombie’s Halloween).
The plotline is standard horror fare, insert a crazy scientist with the ability to make people see scary things, mix it in with a cast of terror-prone patients and have everyone run around being scared until something bad happens or they find their way out cured. We have seen it all before, I know, but like most things the real question is not what this series is about but how well they manage to execute on standard tropes.
Considering this is higher budget than most attempts at horror on the web, the effects look really spectacular and you have a cast of horror legends at the helm, I am looking forward to seeing how they pull this off.
Horror legend Robert Englund (Freddy Krueger of the Nightmare on Elm Street blockbuster franchise) stars as the sinister, maniacal genius Dr. Andover. His obsession: to cure humanity’s worst fears. His method: the Fear Chamber, a device of his creation that can bring any worst fear to life. With Dr. Andover’s extreme methods his unwilling patients will be cured for good…or die trying!
