What’s your greatest fear?  That’s the question posed to ambitious young illustrator Natalie, who is forced to create 4 of the most terrifying stories imaginable for the new comic book Hi-Fear. In Losing it at the Devil’s Whorehouse, some unlucky lads out for a night of fun run afoul of a den of sin that just might cost them their lives.  A cop and a televangelist commit the perfect murder in When Shadows Come Alive only to find themselves stranded in the woods with a family of cannibals.  The Streets are Watching follows a homeless youth through an all-night urban odyssey as she tries to escape from a demon-possessed madman.  Finally, Day out of Days concerns 3 isolated film crew members who find themselves at the center of an apocalyptic invasion.  With each tale more twisted than the last, Hi-Fear is a frightening finale to the Hi-8 trilogy.
