An otherworldly plunge into the depths of internet hell, this claustrophobic, largely bedroom-confined horror is a zeitgeist-capturing genre exploration of isolation, identity & anxiety…

Teenage horror fan Casey (newcomer Anna Cobb) decides to take the World’s Fair Challenge, an initiation into “the internet’s scariest online horror game.”

She does so in the knowledge – and indeed the hope – that it might cause bizarre, seemingly supernatural side-effects to her body and mind.

Casey is lonely, isolated in her attic bedroom, and her interactions with the outside world (and with us, the viewer) are primarily via her laptop’s webcam or her phone’s camera.

As she begins documenting and posting online the uncanny and unnerving effects the game is having upon her, she is contacted by the mysterious JLB, an apparent veteran of World’s Fair, who admires the content she has created and offers to unveil the mysteries of the game to her…

A remarkable, expertly unsettling, queasily atmsopheric first feature from non-binary filmmaker Jane Schoenbrun, supported by A Ghost Story’s David Lowery as executive producer, We’re All Going to the World’s Fair entangles a coming-of-age drama with an unnerving look into the unhinged depths of creepypasta culture…
