|PHOBE movie poster|
That's what I would be exclaiming had I been searching for this obscure, long-lost staple of cable TV and finally found it.
However, the truth is that I never even knew this movie existed until a few days ago. Since that short amount of time, it has piqued my interest. I knew immediately that it was something I needed to find out more about and feature on this blog.
I found out about PHOBE on Twitter, following the hashtag #CanFilmDay, which was in celebration of National Canadian Film Day on April 20th. That's when I noticed twitter.com/PHOBE_LIVES, the official Twitter account for a movie that until then, was nowhere on my radar screen.
I was able to confirm that Erica Benedikty, the writer and director of PHOBE, was the author of the tweets. I took the opportunity to ask if she would answer some interview questions and she graciously agreed.
Before we get to that interview though, let's get a synopsis and some background on PHOBE.
