Summary

An AI expert must use her lifetime's work to find a cure for a rabies outbreak, that threatens to push humanity to the edge of extinction. But can she save humanity from it's greatest threat - itself?

She discovers that the world has been deceived on an unimaginable scale. She realises that only she holds the key to saving humanity, if she can only stay alive long enough...

What makes Land of Fear unique, compelling and highly marketable is the fast-paced, action-packed plot, deeply reflective social commentary, sci-fi underpinnings, unexpected ending and familiar yet unique premise. Think CONTAGION meets 28 DAYS LATER meets EX MACHINA.

"The writer does a great job of never letting the audience off the hook."

​Land of Fear is a Quarter Finalist in both the 2020 Page International Screenwriting Awards and the the 2020 Screencraft Horror screenplay competitions.
