Get ready to face your biggest fears! Artsploitation Films has acquired the U.S. and Canadian rights to EuroObscura’s A Taste of Phobia, a harrowing horror anthology created by 14 international directors. Produced by Vestra Pictures and The Enchanted Architect, in collaboration with Trash Art Pictures, the film is scheduled for DVD and VOD release in May 2018.
“As someone with a high number of phobias myself — fear of ceiling fans and hotel remotes to name just two — I was hesitant to watch A Taste of Phobia. But after 90 minutes of seeing people traumatized, institutionalized and dying from their fears, I felt much better,” said Artsploitation President, Raymond Murray. “It’s a cinematic colonic for a sick mind and a must for Artsploitation fans.”
A Taste of Phobia combines the talents of directors known for making a bloody good splash such as James Quinn (The Law of Sodom), Sam Mason Bell (The Making Of), Jason Impey (Home Made), Alessandro Redaelli (P.O.E. 3), Chris Milewski (Welcome to the World, Dear Child), Alessandro Giordani (L’insonne: Ouverture) and Domiziano Cristopharo (Virus: Extreme Contamination, Dark Waves).
“We are proud that Artsploitation will be releasing this great and scary horror movie in the U.S.,” said Marco Magni, international sales representative for EuroObscura. “I’m sure that the fans of horror movies in America will enjoy it and will also be surprised to learn about the more strange and terrifying kind of phobias that exist in the world.”
Of the multitude of fears, A Taste of Phobia delves into some of the weirdest and wildest, each with its own bloody twist. Presenting 14 unnerving segments, featured phobias include caetophobia (fear of hairs), henophobia (fear of young virgin girls), coprophobia (fear of feces), mysophobia (fear of contamination and germs), mazeophobia (fear of being lost), astrophobia (fear of celestial objects), mageirocophobia (fear of cooking) and oneirophobia (fear of dreams).
