User Reviews

An average thriller with an interesting, early performance by the great Pruitt Taylor Vince.
29 September 1998 | by (London, England) – See all my reviews

FEAR isn't the best thriller film around but it sustained my interest and kept me watching till the end.

The best thing about the film is the performance of Pruitt Taylor Vince as The Shadow Man. Pruitt Taylor Vince is one the greatest actors around and although this part is not nearly meaty enough for an actor of his talents, it was nonetheless interesting to see one of his earlier roles.
