DALLAS, TX – Loud Pictures and Highland Myst Entertainment are proud to announce the release of PHOBIA to a wide video-on-demand market throughout North America. Part gothic murder mystery and part vampire horror, this period piece stars Erica Leerhsen (Texas Chainsaw Massacre, Wrong Turn 2), Chase Jeffery (Exposed, American Virgin), Matthew Tompkins (Killing Down, Missionary Man), and Jonathan Brooks (The Next Door Neighbor, Seasons of Gray).
Set in 1885, Dr. Lesley Parker (Leerhsen) has gained entry to a revolutionary Parisian medical school teaching hypnosis. With Paris plagued by a blood thirsty serial killer, and Lesley preparing to return to San Francisco to open her own psychiatric practice, she is introduced to Val Drakul (Jeffery), a young Romanian man haunted by his family’s tragic past. At the urging of her colleague Sigmund Freud, and accompanied by Val’s cousin Guy (Brooks), Lesley brings him back to San Francisco making him part of a select group of patients all suffering from phobias. But when the patients start dying one by one, and a stranger named I.M. Casey (Tompkins) arrives believing the Parisian serial killer is among them, everyone points their finger at Val – who may or may not be a vampire.
