Phobia Friday: Arachnephobia or Arachnophobia- Fear of spiders.
We caught up with Alien Raiders Director Ben Rock at the Reaper Awards and talked about his new genre project, Mile 15.
FEARnet: Can you talk about any genre projects you’re working on?
Ben Rock: Right now, I’m working on a script with a writer called Mile 15. It’s called Mile 15 and it’s a father with a 10 month old baby on a bypath being chased by a serial killer in a car. It’s all action, very little dialogue. Very stripped down…
In real life, what’s your greatest fear?
My greatest fear would probably be spiders. I’m not into the spiders. When I was in college, I had a pet scorpion. My roommate had a pet tarantula. I could hold the scorpion all fucking day long and one time he put the tarantula on me and it started crawling up my arm , the hair just stood up on the back of my neck. I can’t deal with the spiders. It’s totally irrational.
So no Tarantula remake for you then?
Maybe it would be good if I did do a Tarantula remake!
It could be therapeutic. Thanks!
