‘What are you afraid of?’

Phobic is a 2017 American horror-thriller film about a killer that targets victims with a specific fear, a clinical phobia.

Written and directed by Bryce Clark (Full Circle: A Mission Stories Anthology Film; Beauty and the Least: The Misadventures of Ben Banks), the Pale Moon Entertainment-StoryLab production stars Jacque Gray, Devin Liljenquist, Tiffani DiGregorio, Ernie Lively, Heather Beers, Alex Nibley and James Jamison. Produced by Bryce Clark, Jason Hatfield, Justin Lyon and Duff Rich.


Salt Lake City Homicide Detective Riley Sanders (Grey) is hounded by a masked man and left unconscious, after reacting to a strobe light. This killer is targeting those with clinical phobias, after exposing them to their greatest fears. Now, Riley is the next target on this killer’s kidnap list…


Samuel Goldwyn Films will release Phobic on multiple Digital platforms, across the United States, on December 15th 2020.


Phobic is an extremely slow and talky film. There are endless scenes of people sitting around discussing what we already know about the case. Or even worse, Riley alone in her apartment reading or researching the case. I understand this was done on a low budget but there’s no excuse for endless shots of your lead silently reading a book or staring at a monitor.” Voices from the Balcony
