When just a child, Quaid witnessed his parents’ brutal murder and since then he lives terrorized by bloody nightmares. Unaware of this traumatic event, two friends join up with him in a project to analyze the human being’s deepest fears. Who isn’t afraid of something? Anthony DiBlasi, Barker’s collaborator, must have been when he decided to adapt one of the most horrifically cruel stories from ‘Books of Blood’. But he wasn’t at all intimidated and Dread places us before the monster itself, the monster in all of us that threatens to devour us. Now we ARE scared.


Anthony DiBlasi
