The show Fear Itself was a horror/thriller anthology series that aired on NBC beginning on June 8th, 2008. Despite given the time of Thursday at 10pm/9pm central, the show did not live up to the ratings numbers needed and was canceled after the show went on hiatus in order to make room for the 2008 Olympics.

The show title was derived from the Franklin D. Roosevelt quote, “The only thing we have to fear is fear itself”. The show was in the same line as the show Masters of Horror, each episode was a self contained story that usually ended with a twist, and each story had its own distinct characters portrayed by different characters. In addition, the episodes were all the vision of different directors, the best and biggest in the horror genre such as John Landis (American Werewolf in London), Brad Anderson (Transsiberian), Stuart Gordon (Re-Animator), Darren Lynn Bousman (Saw II, Saw III and Saw IV) and John Dahl (Joy Ride).

Now, FearNET, both a website and onDemand cable network have secured the rights to air the series, including the last five unaired episodes, which can be seen via Comcast or via the website, www.fearnet.com
