Fear Itself was a series of stand-alone films produced and broadcast under the series title Fear Itself; each episode is written and directed by a well-known horror or suspense film maker such as John Landis and John Dahl. The series was produced by Fear Itself Productions, Industry Entertainment and Lionsgate Television for the NBC network in the U.S.; beginning its run in June 2008, the series was taken off air for the 2008 Summer Olympics and never returned to U.S. television screens. Created by horror writer Mark Garriss, the first season consists of 13 episodes of which only the first eight episodes were aired on NBC.
Fear Itself was created by Mark Garriss after an earlier show, Masters of Horror, which ran on the Showtime Network from 2005 to 2007, was cancelled. Garriss and executive producer Andrew Deane took the format of Masters of Horror and transferred it to the Fear Itself series of stand-alone stories told during a 60-minute television play. Fear Itself was filmed in Canada to reduce costs, with principal photography taking place in Edmonton, Alberta, and other location work was completed in St. Albert, Alberta.
A good example of the format of the show is the fourth episode of the season entitled "In Sickness and in Health" directed by Hollywood horror veteran John Landis. The story begins on the eve of a wedding with a small party being held for the bride, Samantha, and the female members of the bridal party. A note is passed to Samantha telling her she is about to marry a serial killer; the note was written by the priest who is about to preside over the wedding. Samantha marries Carlos, but the tension between the pair and their close friends and family is now obvious. Tension builds until Carlos discovers the note and is told he was the intended recipient; the show ends with a strange reconciliation between the pair, giving the impression Samantha is about to murder her new husband.
