Los Angeles, CA – July X, 2009 – FEARnet, the world’s premier online and on demand destination for horror, thriller and suspense will be bringing out the stars of their upcoming spine tingling web series “Fear Clinic”– led by horror legends Robert Englund (Freddy Krueger of The Nightmare on Elm Street blockbuster franchise) and Kane Hodder (Jason Voorhees in the Friday the 13th franchise), scream queen Danielle Harris (Rob Zombie’s Halloween) and series director Robert Hall (Laid to Rest) — will up the fear factor at Comic-Con 2009 with a panel event and exclusive sneak preview of the highly-buzzed about production set to premiere this October.
FEARnet is further upping the scare ante as the “Master of Horror” himself, Clive Barker (Hellraiser and Candyman franchises) will moderate the “Fear Clinic” panel event scheduled for Friday, July 24 from 6:30-7:30pm in Room 5AB.

During the hour long panel, Barker will lead panelists in a discussion about the making of the eerie “Fear Clinic” which follows the sinister, maniacal genius Dr. Andover (Englund) whose obsession is to cure humanity’s worst fears using a method of his creation called: The Fear Chamber — a device that can bring any worst fear to life.

About Fear Clinic
Welcome to your worst fears! In “Fear Clinic,” Horror legend Robert Englund stars as the sinister, maniacal genius Dr. Andover. His obsession: to cure humanity’s worst fears. His method: the Fear Chamber, a device of his creation that can bring any worst fear to life. With Dr. Andover’s extreme methods his unwilling patients will be cured for good…or die trying.
The spine-tingling action of Fear Clinic will unfold over five webisodes. Each episode will spotlight Dr. Andover’s eerily extreme methods to help a patient at the clinic conquer their greatest fears: from hydrophobia (fear of water), scotophopia (fear of the dark), and entomophobia (fear of insects), to claustrophobia (fear of small spaces) and misophobia (fear of being contained with germs or dirt). Danielle Harris and Kane Hodder co-star. The project is directed by Robert Hall (Laid to Rest) with effects from his company Almost Human (Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Quarantine, The Burrowers) from a script by Aaron R. Drane and executive produced by Mark B. Johnson and Jim Burns.
