Trailer: John Travolta is "Moose" in THE FANATIC from Fred Durst

John Travolta is a sadistic stalker in the bonkers trailer for The Fanatic

Quiver Distribution has released the first trailer to The Fanatic (via The Hollywood Reporter), starring John Travolta as a fan overly obsessed with a celebrity.

The ensuing calamity involves yards of rope confining Hunter to his bed, voodoo dolls, strangling, attempted stabbings, and lots of screaming - all while Travolta rocks one of the boldest looks of his career.

Imagine it's the year 1998, and someone told you that Ice Cube - late of NWA - is going to star in a family-friendly movie that'll be directed by the guy from Limp Bizkit. "'The Fanatic'is loosely based on something that happened to the Limp Bizkit frontman; there are also shades of "Misery" in the trailer". He mumbles lines demonstrating that he is, in fact, just a humble fan "who want [s] an autograph", echoing the tagline of the film. Hunter Dunbar is played by Devon Sawa of all people - the bloke from Final Destination.

I'm not saying The Fanatic looks good. Then you throw in the tidbit about John Travolta dressing up in a full Jason Voorhees costume.

In The Fanatic, Travolta plays a man named Moose who is a big, y'huge fan of a movie star named Hunter Dunbar. When he is cheated out of his opportunity to finally meet Hunter, Moose gets a little help from his friend Leah, a well-connected paparazzi photographer, who knows how to find celebrity homes. Moose turns to stalking to get the celebrity interaction he feels he deserves, and while harmless at first, Moose's actions begin to take a dark turn as his obsession grows stronger.

The film is due to be released on 30 August later this year. Things escalate toward violence pretty fast, as Moose finds his way onto Dunbar's property and tries really hard to get an autograph.
