Family of Fear iTunes Release Details: Family of Fear will be released on iTunes beginning October 23rd:

"SYNOPSIS: FAMILY OF FEAR follows an eclectic group of artists and "spooks" as they build and work in one of the country's scariest haunted house attractions - the 50,000 square foot Arx Mortis Haunted Attraction in Killen, Alabama.

Bathed in blood and in search of screams, the members of this "family" don't work at the haunt for money: they work solely for the scares and the support of one another. Their stories are all sadly similar -- many have suffered bullying due to their uniqueness in the small southern towns surrounding Arx Mortis. Others suffer from depression or other challenges and have no real community or family support system to help.

Coming off a season of family struggles and bad reviews they are determined to make a comeback and rediscover what brings them all together, and why they call themselves a haunt family. After all, the family that scares together, stays together in this feature-length documentary that's surprisingly funny, shockingly scary, and meaningfully poignant.

Directed by: Stephen Lackey
Produced by: Stephen Lackey, Zach Martin
Executive Producer: Roland Rojas
Associate Producer: Nick Manning
Director of Photography: Zach Martin
Editor: Stephen Lackey, Zach Martin

    About the Author - Tamika Jones

    Tamika hails from North Beach, Maryland, a tiny town inches from the Chesapeake Bay.She knew she wanted to be an actor after reciting a soliloquy by Sojourner Truth in front of her entire fifth grade class. Since then, she's appeared in over 20 film and television projects. In addition to acting, Tamika is the Indie Spotlight manager for Daily Dead, where she brings readers news on independent horror projects every weekend.

    The first horror film Tamika watched was Child's Play. Being eight years old at the time, she remembers being so scared when Chucky came to life that she projectile vomited. It's tough for her to choose only one movie as her favorite horror film, so she picked two: Nosferatu and The Stepford Wives (1975).
