is a 2016 horror/thriller short film written and directed by ItsFearHerself, Nicole Renee and produced by Rashaad King, Mark Anthony and Christina Gaspard.
The film follows Gina, a Type-1 Diabetic who is having trouble managing her condition after reading about death and diabetes. She’s haunted in her dreams by something a little too close for comfort, later realizing she won’t ever be able to escape herself.
Fear Thyself was developed in February 2016 and began principal photography in April 2016. The original version of the script was developed as the first installment of a ten-part anthology series created by Rashaad King entitled Expressions. As time progressed, Fear Thyself took on a life of it’s own and turned into it’s own standalone project.
The film debuted on World Diabetes Day on Monday, November 14th, 2016 at the Los Angeles Public Library as part of their November programming in conjunction with Diabetes Awareness Month.
To date, Fear Thyself is the only film of it’s kind to take on the horror/thriller genre focused on Type-1 diabetes.
