Fear Itself (2008)

Lookie who I found today...

Mouse Ears in a cop uniform!

Apparently NBC premiered a horror anthology show right before covering the 2008 Summer Olympics in Beijing, then never brought it back from hiatus.  Whuuuut?  Typically I hear about new network programs about three years after they've been cancelled (like Defying Gravity, which would probably do great right now with the ending of the space shuttle program).  The 13 episodes of Fear Itself are currently on Netflix Instant Watch.  You can find more information about the directors of the episodes on the FEARnet page.

Now for all I know, Lizzy Moss may only be in three minutes of this first episode.  I've only watched through the opening sequence. 

The song used is what led me to discovering this show.  I found it mentioned in the comments of the video for Serj Tankian's Lie Lie Lie.

While we're waiting for Mad Men to return, you can also see Lizzy Moss in the horror flick The Attic directed by Mary Lambert (Pet Sematary). 

I sometimes confuse Mary Lambert's name with Mary Harron (American Psycho) who just happens to have directed the third episode of Fear Itself, "Community" !

I really enjoyed Fear Itself, as I enjoyed the Masters of Horror series before it. (It's basically a third season of MOH with a different title.) At the time that it aired, I was one of few people who had a positive reaction to it, it wasn't very popular online.

Elizabeth Moss plays the lead character in the Eater episode.

I am simply incapable of remembering which Mary directed which movie. I always feel about that since I think American Psycho is a much better directed film, but try as I might, I just give up.

Also, if you want to see Elizabeth Moss as a CHILD, check out the Bette Midler version of Gypsy. It was streaming on Netflix a while back, not sure if it's still there. I watched it and gasped out loud when I realized I was seeing a tiny Peggy Olson dancing as a cow.
