AMC’s month-long Fearfest celebration just got interesting with the release of a series of mini-docs titled “Living Nightmares,” which feature one major human fear per episode.
From the Press Release:
Over ninety feature films are helping to celebrate AMC’s 2012 Fearfest, and the network has developed several mini-shockumentaries to precede and play during these many films. Ten “Living Nightmares” are being aired during AMC’s Fearfest. These short reels of 3-5 minutes in length include the violent expose “Breaking Point,” the eye-opening hydrophobia-focused “Dead Pool,” the controversial alien short “Invasion,” and the human blood-drinking documentary “Blood Work.” All of these short features focus on a specific human terror.
Several horror stars are featured in these mini-documentaries. Horror icon Bill Oberst, Jr. (Abraham Lincoln vs. Zombies) re-enacts Elliot Cruise’s real-life testimony as an extraterrestrial expert in “Invasion.” Cruise’s accounts of Area 51 and the Roswell Incident will terrify viewers, and it will make them see the universe in a much different way.
Actor Circus Szalewski (Zombies vs. Strippers) is Rusty Wallingsford in “Abduction.” Rusty recounts his experience at the hands of a greyish alien species who used scalpels to tear into his friend. Dave Vescio (Lost Soul) also stars in a segment. Vescio retells Det. Pink’s many years of experience pursuing criminals who drink blood for “power.” Video evidence from “Blood Work” also suggests that there are dozens of “blood-drinkers” operating actively in the San Fernando Valley.
Finally, Irina Stemer (The Killer Within Me) is Dr. Metgzer in “Cannibals.” Dr. Metzger has promoted real-life cannibalism for years now. Droughts and a lack of food, she believes, mean that cannibalism is now a viable alternative for human consumption!
The complete line-up of mini-docs includes: “Breaking Point,” “Sleep No More,” “Dead Pool,” “Bugged to Death,” “Invasion,” “Cannibals,” “Blood Work,” “Hallow’s Eve,” “Evil Spirits,” and “Abduction.” The director is Steve Peterston, creative director is Ken Carlson, and producers are Matthew LeBouef, Sean Owolo, David Berrent, and Charlotte Culina.
