TV show description:
An anthology series with a suspense and horror theme. The title of the program is derived from the quote from President Franklin Delano Roosevelt’s legendary inaugural address, “The only thing we have to fear, is fear itself.”

The self-contained installments are helmed by notable and award-winning directors, including Breck Eisner (son of former Disney CEO Michael Eisner), Brad Anderson, Ronny Yu, John Landis, Stuart Gordan, Mary Harron, Darren Lynn Bousman, Ernest Dickerson, Larry Freshened, Rob Bowman, John Dahl, Rupert Wainwright, and Eduardo Rodriguez.

Each episode features not only a new director but also an entirely different cast — ensuring that audiences can never be sure which characters, if any, will survive their own personal nightmare.

    Problem with the show was that the good guys almost never won. It wasn’t balanced enough. What fun is watching an evil TV series if good never prevails? For a normal person, it’s not. Tales from the Crypt was far more balanced as was Tales from the Dark Side, Twilight Zone, Outer Limits etc.

    I have to say I strating to watch new shows because so many of them get cancelled. I have to say the show Fear Itself I really thought was going to make it. My self and my family are so sick of watching the same old dramas like the 3 different law and orders and the mutiple CSI’s. And most comedy shows don’t make it anyway. This show was REALLY different and I really thought it was going to last. Hopefully another network will pick it up and show it in place of the reruns that they show over and over.

    I used to watch Tales From the Crypt….this show gave me the same cool, should I be scared, happy…..opposed to what’s happening vibe. That means it had good stories bring it back. But I doubt it….probably put some more crappy reality shows on.
