Watch Simon Pegg like you've never seen him before in the trailer for 'A Fantastic Fear of Everything'

What the hell did I just watch? That's what I was asking myself after watching Simon Pegg in A Fantastic Fear of Everything. It is probably the most interesting role I've seen Pegg in, and the movie looks both whimsical and creepy at the same time. 

Here's the synopsis for A Fantastic Fear of Everything:

Jack (Simon Pegg) is a children’s author turned crime novelist whose detailed research into the lives of Victorian serial killers has turned him into a paranoid wreck, persecuted by an irrational fear of being murdered. When Jack is thrown a lifeline by his long-suffering agent, and a mysterious Hollywood executive takes a sudden and inexplicable interest in Jack’s script, what should be his "big break" rapidly turns into his "big breakdown" as Jack is forced to confront his worst fears; among them love, laundromats and serial killers.

The trailer is strange, but it has my attention. Let us know what you think of the trailer in our comments below.

A Fantastic Fear of Everything opens in theaters on February 7, 2014.
