A recent survey reveals that balmy Brits are becoming weirder and weirder as fears of chicken’s feet, money, dead birds, ants, balloons, crabs and snow were all polled as they were asked what is their greatest fear. Twentieth Century Fox asked Brits and our pals across the pond to reveal what their greatest fears are to mark the release of TV series ‘American Horror Story’ to Blu-ray and DVD.

Despite now having ‘luscious locks’ Brits will still be replicating Wayne Rooney’s ‘Shrek-like’ look this Halloween when he was revealed as the fourth scariest looking celebrity. Jackie Stallone dubbed the ‘Bride of Wildenstein’s evil twin sister’ by Brits topped this category, with Marilyn Manson being named as the celebrity most Americans would be scared of bumping into in a dark alley.

The top phobia in the UK was found to be spiders, with Yorkshire being the area that housed the most people who admitted to suffering with an irrational fear.  Americans proved they don’t have the stomach for heights when this was discovered as their greatest phobia.

Violence was the number one fear for UK and US citizens alike, beating worries such as terrorism, gun crime and natural disasters.

America proved itself to be a country of believers with over 35% of people saying they believed and had seen a ghostly presence, compared to only 25% from the United Kingdom who mostly said they did not believe in spirits or paranormal activity. Those living in the London area where more likely to have seen a ghost than anywhere else in the country.

In terms of which fear most defines the two countries, terrorism struck a chord with US respondents whilst the UK choose not to be defined by one clear fear. However, more men than women in the UK think terrorism is a prevalent concern.

As expected more women are afraid of the dark than men in both the UK and US, with 21% of women in the UK admitting to still being afraid of the dark compared to only 14% in America. However it was Northern Ireland which came out on top of the survey as being the region most likely to keep their night light on and avoid the dark.
Most Brits felt that their fears remained consistent throughout their lives whilst American optimism shone through with 48% believing their fears have been alleviated as they got older.

'American Horror Story' is released on Blu-ray and DVD on 15th October courtesy of Twentieth Century Fox Home Entertainment. To win a copy of the first season of 'American Horror Story' on Blu-ray simply head here.
