Issue No. 16 | Fear Itself
The Horror Show
The feeling in the pit of your stomach. That chill on your neck. A sudden sound, a strange movement. Your heart practically beating out of your chest. Our October issue explores anxiety, fear, and dread—the dominant feelings, perhaps, of 2018. First, there’s our provocative new documentary series, A Cure for Fear, for which filmmaker Lana Wilson was given unprecedented access to document the groundbreaking work of a researcher able to cure debilitating phobias and PTSD with the help of a common pill. Also in the issue: an interview with The Walking Dead’s scaremaster, Greg Nicotero; a visit to a classroom full of adults terrified of flying; a collection of haunted items from eBay; and much more.
