No matter how harmless Robert Englund looks in a suit, if he showed up at my door with a tattooed fellow and offered to cure me of my worst fears, I'd politely tell him "Thanks, but no thanks."

Directed by Rob Hall and starring Robert Englund, Kane Hodder, and Danielle Harris, Fear Clinic will premiere in October on FEARnet.com and FEARnet's video-on-demand channels. You'll also be able to find it on Fancast, Hulu, You Tube, Crackle, and Break. There's no excuses to miss it, because it'll be free and accessible anywhere you look, so make sure you take some time out to watch. Original online content is really becoming the wave of the edgy entertainment future, and if the trailer below is any indication, Fear Clinic might just show everyone what its capable of.
