Simon Pegg takes centre stage in A Fabulous Fear of Everything, a comedy with an edge to it, that never quite measures up fully to its ideas. Still, there are still things to like here, in an ambitious British production that centres very heavily on its leading star.
Pegg stars as a writer, one who is researching his latest piece of work for television. In the process, he becomes more and more interested in Victorian serial killers, to the point where, as the title suggests, fear kicks in very easily. Stylistically interesting, the film never quite builds on that premise, and the back end in particular struggles. But Pegg is on good form here, and A Fantastic Fear of Everything is an interesting enough movie to warrant a viewing or two.
The disc comes with a series of interviews, a trailer, and deleted scenes. And then there's a feature length commentary track, which is the finest supplement of the lot. This features Simon Pegg along with co-directors Crispian Mills and Chris Hopewell, and they're engaging company. A Fantastic Fear of Everything may have problems, but it remains an interesting film on an interesting disc. –-Jon Foster

I wouldn't call myself a fan of Simon Pegg, at the same time there isn't a movie of his I've seen and disliked, so if you're not so keen on his films then you might find this one rough to watch.
Sure, I didn't find it that funny - The most amused I felt during this film, if at any one point, was a small clip around the ending (I did have a good laugh at it, too) though the film itself did enough to keep me occupied to watch it the whole way through, despite how I am a lover of watching films it seems my attention span towards watching films for the first time has become relatively short recently and I have to get back to where I left off at a later point, this was not the case for this film however.
I am pleased to have seen this film and will definitely be recommending it to my friends, if they have yet to see it.
The premise is good but obviously limited, especially when Jack ventures forth, but it is sustained by a clever back-story relating to his abandonment by his mother when only a young child. This also ties him in with an active serial killer of sorts and develops Jack into a more rounded character than a psychosis riddled man stuck in a depressing flat.
The humour is definitely black with a little slapstick thrown in for good measure. Jack’s descent into terror provides many opportunities for macabre humour and Simon Pegg is perfect for the role. He is ably assisted by Amara Karan as a surprise love interest, a woman who is intelligent, brave, and pretty; and also Alan Drake as Perkins.
It is an entertaining film, the kind that Hollywood generally does not make. In turns it manages to be humorous and yet also a little gritty, its’ reflections of life in launderettes and on streets at night give it an edge. It also has a surreal feel that is developed by the animated story that pulls everything together at the end.
