If you haven’t seen it yet, do go out and do so right away. Trust me, you won’t be disappointed!
The story begins with a news report highlighting some tragic instances in which children who had never been afraid before committed suicide. The report then goes on to detail the aftermath of such events, detailing how these children became monsters overnight. The problem arises when the police arrive at the scene of the crime and are met with an assortment of violent behavior from the “children”. The police are then asked to escort one of these children, named Michael, home to his parent’s house.
Michael suffers from a condition called panic disorder, characterized by uncontrollable panic attacks. The End of Fear follows the police team as they escort Michael back home, encountering him terrified as he hides in a cupboard. We then follow the rest of the film as Michael slowly begins to unravel the mystery behind his fears and comes to terms with the fact that he has no reason to be scared at all.
