Watch: Paranoid Simon Pegg in 'Fantastic Fear of Everything' US Trailer
This year Simon Pegg saw some big action in both Star Trek Into Darkness and the conclusion of The Three Flavours Cornetto Trilogy in The World's End. Now he's toning it down a bit in a lower profile comedy called A Fantastic Fear of Everything. The film has already seen release in the United Kingdom, and now it's headed to the United States. Kula Shaker frontman Crispian Mills directs this film about a children's author-turned-crime-novelist whose deep research into gruesome Victorian era murders has made him an insomniac, fearful mess who finds himself on the run from an actual serial killer. Watch now!
Here's the US trailer for Crispian Mills' A Fantastic Fear of Everything, originally from Apple:

When Jack is thrown a lifeline by his long-suffering agent, and a mysterious Hollywood executive takes a sudden and inexplicable interest in Jack’s script, what should be his "big break" rapidly turns into his "big breakdown" as Jack is forced to confront his worst fears; love, laundromats and serial killers. Amara Karan, Clare Higgins, Alan Drake & Paul Freeman also star in the film Cinedigm releases the film February 7th, 2014.
