After Dark Horrorfest: Dread
Quaid, a student of philosophy, is obsessed by his own nightmare of an ax-murdering clown so he concocts a series of experiments to observe firsthand how other people react to the things that most horrify them. But while Quaid slowly unpeels the psyches of his imprisoned and tortured captives like a reeking onion, his own dread waits, just beyond his control.

Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"A bit too concerned with gore to really grapple with the concept of dread, but too full of dialogue to be genuinely thrilling"
‑ Jeremy Heilman,
"A clever balancing act between basic scares, a creepy concept, and something a little more (dare I say) cerebral."
‑ Scott Weinberg, FEARnet
"A horror flick that saves the shocks for the end. It's not soon enough. Paul Chambers, CNN."
‑ Paul Chambers, CNNRadio
"It is a film very much about its own audience, confronting us all with the insatiable sadism and voyeurism of those who seek to dispel their own innermost fears vicariously."
‑ Anton Bitel, Little White Lies
