CITY OF FEAR
Grim times lie behind us and horror lies ahead. Welcome to the city. The city of fear.
In the apartment of burned-out journalist Billy, there’s a coming and going of strange creatures. His editor in chief waves deadlines for the most godawfully mindless articles into his face while the world around Billy drowns in filth. Business as usual in this swamp full of freaks, violence, corruption and miniature baby puppies. But when Billy doesn’t write the usual gossip one day, he is greeted by a wave of excitement from the oppressed underclass.

„A predominant feeling which carries over during this 70 minute long evening, is passion. Passionate for a genre, passionate for cliché, passionate to picturize. (…) „life sucks“ final words and quintessence in „City of Fear“, but as long as it's been told in such an excited way, there is hope in it.“ Tim Tonndorf in Double 04/2013
