For our purposes at AITH, we'll mainly focus our attention on the handful of Midnight screenings that pertain to our film fancy. Of the many, we've written about all but one. So consider this your introduction to IN FEAR as well.

Goody. S-VHS should be available sooner (in 2013) rather than later. The film-makers need something to screen in January, right? I could use another VHS fix. Anyone could. The franchise is one of the few good found footage offerings, for 'tis not kids' stuff but rather bad-ass.
