Director Charlie Lyne in person. Free to Amherst Cinema Members.

Constructed entirely from existing films, FEAR ITSELF is a journey through fear and cinema that asks whether horror movies know us better than we know ourselves.

Encouraging viewers to interrogate a diverse range of images and sounds sampled from a hundred years of global cinema, FEAR ITSELF informs and unnerves in equal measure, changing the way you watch horror movies for good.
